I have been walking for about 120 kilometers since i arrived in#kesennuma last week with a 64 year old Japanese walker named Kihushi-san, who has become a good friend and sort of a father to me. He always reminds me to check if i need to do my laundry already. Walking thru #miyagiprefecture was both bitter and sweet. The people are great and hospitable especially the miyagi-gensuikyo family who organized everything, including the visits to the sites devastated by the tsunami and great east earthquake 5 years ago, which reminded me so much of tacloban a minute after yolanda struck…damage…death and devastation…and then rebuilding and “re-living” of place and people.
The past 6days of walking for peace brought me to realize how really powerful the human spirit is even in the face of tragedy. And that we are just a speck compared not just to the magnificence of creation(nature) but also to its fury…more to come..dont tell my mother i will be in Fukushima tomorrow… #peacemarch #peacewalk#japanpeacemarch2016
