    The anniversary of the tsunami in Japan

    The anniversary of the tsunami in Japan is this weekend. Do you remember what you were doing when you heard about it, and what was your reaction to the news?

    I can't say I remember that much detail about hearing about it. Though in the following days I donated a bit to a relief charity and used it as a chance to teach a kid I was tutoring about tectonic plates.

    Why is it we always have to remember what we were doing on the anniversary of a momentous event.  I feel this exercise always tries to blur the event.
    I love when I am visiting to get out of the cities and visit the Japanese countryside, all the villages and cities in valleys beside the sea, I imagine the homes and shopping centres and workplaces I have visited, the wonderful people.
    I was shocked by the destruction that I saw unfolding on the television in the safety of my home an ocean away, I watched and wept.
