Yesterday, I went for a mammogram. The staff lady talked to me while doing the process.
“Where are you from?”
“I thought Japan.”
“Oh.. people are afraid of the nuclear reactor effects.”
“A small country can create big problem.”
I am quiet.
“Do you know what I mean?” She asked.
I mean the mammogram equipment made me hurt when pressing on it.
Do you know what she means?
I don’t care.
This was a disaster, and we all are on the earth.
Last year, I visited Japan for the first time. The cleanliness of Japan enhanced its beauty and comfort. No one can beat it. It is rare to find rubbish on the ground, and you also do not see many trash bins around. One day, when Steve and I were waiting for the subway train, a man behind me spoke Japanese to me, and he pointed to a white handkerchief on the ground. I shook my head. He picked it up. After we went on the train, I observed him and saw he sat with the handkerchief on his lap.
When we watched the news, I am amazed by Japanese discipline during this disaster. I think the Japanese people are the best prepared for disasters in the world.
