The situation was frustrating for a month after the disaster, because I couldn't do anything even though I wanted to. However, I think we are now at a stage where we can get down to securing our jobs and houses, and to rebuilding our communities. In a thousand years, oral stories and folklores will be all that remain in our records of the disaster. I think that there is a need for us to make efforts to preserve as many stories as possible.
