Today is the third year anniversary of the March 11th earthquake and tsunami that hit the eastern coast of Japan. Many people who know me already know about my experience, but anyone who is curious can take a look here.

But I think it’s crazy how much time has passed. I’ve even been told that one of my co-workers and his wife will be doing a special with Dateline to talk about their experience. That’s surreal. I just remember thinking that I went to Japan and ended up experiencing something historic that very few people can say they witnessed first hand.

I don’t talk much about my experience now (mostly because no one really wants to hear it), but I always think about those three days in Kuji and the people who lost so much.

Gambatte Kuji. Gambatte Iwate. Gambatte Nihon.
