"A people that does not bow before the suffering
That resist and fight!
Which is still orderly and supportive
Despite the hunger and cold no withdrawals
Despite the sadness, survives
Despite the bitterness, believes in the future.
The deepest reverence to the Japanese people on this blog
and a desire that the suffering and pass back the joy ..."
