I was at home when the earthquake hit. I ran up the hill and sheltered there with a thousand others as the tsunami destroyed our town below us. We stayed there overnight.
When I went back to my house, it was still standing but the tsunami had washed away all the furniture. Now I stay in this evacuation center. I sleep on the floor of the same classroom where I studied as a boy.
It’s cold and there’s not enough food. But there are many places that are worse than this.
