Ishinomaki - Japan

I've always wanted to travel to the "Manga city" in Japan, but being here today is rather heartbreaking

I'm at Ishinomaki, Day 8 after the Tsunami. Streets are being cleared, but damage is still very obvious.

I hope the town rebuilds, so I can come visit another day.

I am with Relief 2.0 to help empower, enable, engage and connect the local. And will share their brave stories of perseverance so others may learn from them.

The brave Japanese does not need pity or donation, they need loans to help rebuild their businesses and come up with creative ways to starting over.

I wish them well, and believe that they are strong people and will succeed.
