On the day when the earthquake occurred, I lost words to see the footage of the devastating Tsunami. We all worry about radiation now. People who had to evacuate by leaving their pet animals, just like their family members, or others who are still left with their familly member animals. Or people who are producing food like fruits, vegetables and rice, or those who used to fish. While it is heart-breaking to think of those poeple, a large numbe of mothers who are raising their babies are so worried about the food safety. Wishing for an early recovery, and wearing these T-shirts will remind us of our own new way of life.
