🌸Good morning! 🌸

Let me introduce you my friend Hikari.

Hikari is a survivor of Great East Japan Earthquake in 2011, she was an elementary school student in Ishinomaki city, Miyagi.
 She told me there were 2 elementary school in her neighborhood. Students in her school survived, while the others didn't survive.

She said the biggest difference was how school principal gave guidance to evacuate for students.
Principal of Hikari gave guidance as follows: "stay at the second floor of auditorium till Tsunami subsides" - altitude of second floor was enough high to escape from Tsunami. While, Teachers in other school was not quick enough to respond to Tsunami attack. She said Tsunami was like an roller-coaster.

She was just 10 years old or so. When she was in despair, radio played "Jupiter" of Hirahara Ayaka, she was touched by strong and encouraging melody of Jupiter, and she felt stronger thanks to the music. She listened Jupiter, over and over again, and finally swore to be a singer, to raise the spirits of the people, like once Ayaka Hirahara did for her.

Now she lives in Tokyo by herself, and works at warehouse, part time and chases her dream. I hope her voice reaches your heart and raise your spirit in the hard time.
