Japanese Earthquake and Tsunami Anniversary0
By - Posted 4th July, 2015 at 9:35 pm

Today marks the one year anniversary of the earthquake and tsunami that devastated Japan.

On this date last year a 9.0 magnitude earthquake shook the entire globe and sent a massive wall of water hurdling towards the coast line of Japan. Millions fled for high ground, but of those millions, 16,000 people died and over 3,000 people are still missing.

This afternoon, at 2:36 p.m. local time, the exact time of the earthquake, the country of Japan toke a moment of silence. Not only were many lives lost, but the event also triggered the world’s worst nuclear crisis in over a quarter century.

The way of life was also changed drastically in Japan. Here is what Nicky Washida said, on the new way of life:
                                                                                                                                                                                                                                  
“On the surface, it is business as usual. We wake up, we go to work, we shop for dinner. We drink, we laugh, we care for our children. But running underneath the veneer of normality is the constant reminder that life has changed.”

Things as simple as buying food can be scary. There is a high risk of contamination due to the nuclear crisis. The Fukushima Daiichi nuclear facility was knocked offline, causing three reactors to meltdown, while radiation spilled into the air and contaminated water found its way to the sea.

One year later and Japan is far from dug out the destruction, but the prime minister did say that he is committed to rebuilding and in re-energizing the nation in the process.

“A lot of Japanese are very optimistic, so don’t worry about (us) too much,” said one Japanese citizen
