Hope☆希望

Hi, this is Shire. Thank you very much for coming to my room again♪

As some of you may know, Japan recently have had a series of natural (there were a few suspicious ones) disasters: double & triple hurricanes (typhoons) hitting directly, torrential rains, and the recent earthquake hitting Hokkaido island where the total blackout had caused all day long (now, the electricity came back nearly 100% there).  

It is amazing to see how many such disasters keep coming to the small country one after another. Plus, you cannot believe how people there are behaving during such tremendous disasters.

One of the blog readers who live in Hokkaido posted some reports (in Japanese) of the first day after the earthquake: Cars were sharing the way & running pretty normally even without signals, Many customers at a convenience store quietly lined up to wait their turn while the shop assistant/clark working with portable calculators (because there is no electricity) one by one, People gathered not in a panic state but still smiling and helping each other (some of them even taking a beautiful photo of the sky since they could see more stars by the blackout)… she was just amazed how Japanese people could be so clam and staying as normal as they could be.

Hope exists such a place.

こんにちは、シャイアです。今日も私のお部屋にお越し頂きましてありがとうございます♪

日本は災害大国と言われて久しいですが、今年ほど立て続けに災害が起こる年も珍しいのではないかと思います。まずは、豪雨、台風そして地震で被害に遭われた皆様へお見舞いを申し上げ、お亡くなりになられた方へはご冥福をお祈りいたします。

本家ブログに北海道在住の読者からのレポートが届きました。ご本人も驚いていらっしゃいましたが、本当に、皆さんの落ち着いた行動、譲り合いの心は素晴らしい。ツイッターでも、停電で夜空が美しいと画像を投稿されている北海道の方々が結構いらっしゃいましたが、その心の余裕、美しいものを愛でることのできる精神が美しい、と素直に感動しました。

希望とは、こういうところに強く息づいているのだな、と改めて感じさせられました。

このような災害大国に、これまた地球上でも稀に見る素晴らしい心の人たちが集まっている・・・どうか1日も早い復興を願ってやみません。
