(13) “A Letter for Natural Disasters in Japan”
In order to share “togetherness” in difficult times, what can be shared? An earthquake, then a tsunami, and then nuclear radiation. But the worst would be to feel being lonely. The underlined essential case is to know, to share and to feel that nobody is lonely. Maybe you have already realized that you, the Japanese people are not lonely and that people all over the world care about you. Here, in Europe, we have a website for teachers and students. It is called eTwinning. A teacher from Turkey, Aydin Sarikaya, initiated a project with the title “A Letter for Natural Disaster in Japan.” So many European teachers would like to express their solidarity with Japan. There have never been such a huge number of members in an eTwinning project. I’m thinking about you.
We Love You!
