recorder311 Stories 030
After the earthquake, I did not think to make contact with my family and the company and was watching TV in a daze for about two hours. Before and after the earthquake, I felt like I was in a totally different world. Before, I felt there was no value in surviving for a long time, but after experiencing the earthquake, I now think it is my destiny to live a long life. Although I can do a lot of things to remember the earthquake, I now strongly feel that it is physically necessary to live a long life.
