The news said that over 8000 people were confirmed dead and over 12000 people are still missing.
The situation is still unpredictable
and it will be a long time before people begin to think about Japan's reconstruction.

However, I heard a heart-warming story today.
It has been ten days since the earthquake happened, but two people were rescued yesterday.
It was sort of a miracle, wasn't it?
An 80 year old woman and a 16 year old boy were found in a collapsed house.
When police found them, the exhausted boy said, "my 80 year old grandma is still underneath.
Please help her first!"

When they found him, they did not know where she was because of all the rubble.
The head of them told that I was very impressed because he was humble.
He did not even use a portable body warmer nor eat snacks
they gave to him and was worrying about her.

After the policemen removed some rubble, they found her.
When they said "you can feel safe since we can help from now", she burst into tears.
The head police officer said that the place where they were was very dark,
and some water were leaking due to the rain and snow.

One young policeman said with tears to the team leader, "I am happy to be a police officer.
They were really in trouble but we were able to enscue them."
Another policeman said "I am happy that they are still alive.
We want to help as many people sa we can."

I hope we can hear more stories like this.
