This year is the eighth since the giant earthquake that hit northeastern Japan on March 11, 2011. Last year, a variety of natural disasters struck Japan one after another, so the big earthquake of eight years ago seems to be talked about less and less now, as if it had been “overwritten” by those other events. As for myself, though, I’m not so sorry about that. No matter how sad an experience is, or how bad a disaster is, the memory of it eventually fades. I do wish, however, for at least some of the memories to remain, which could afford people in the future some lessons when they look back.
