recorder311 Stories 015 Another Take
I never expected that issues of "who was and wasn't directly affected", feelings of "indebtedness" and "guilt" would surface in Sendai, one of the affected areas. I think the current mood, in which you feel like you are not supposed to speak up unless you were directly affected, belittles the earthquake event. I feel keenly that people in Sendai experience a unique dilemma.
