Two Years on, Remembering The Fukushima Disaster

New America Media, Letter, Andrew Lam , Mar 10, 2013

The letter below, written in Vietnamese by an immigrant who was working in Fukushima as a policeman to a friend in Vietnam, and it was published in newspapers and circulated on the Internet a week or so after the incident. It is an extraordinary testimony to the strength and dignity of the Japanese spirit, and an interesting slice of life near the epicenter of Japan's current crisis, the Fukushima nuclear power plant. I translated and published it on New America Media two weeks after the disaster struck on March 11, 2011. I am reposting it here on the occasion of the two-year anniversary of the Tohoku disaster.
