All the classes lined up while teachers took the register. What shocked me was that the kids were so calm about it all. I guess they are well prepared. However, just as we were let back into the school and were walking down the hall, the first of many aftershocks hit. All the kids sat on the floor quietly. For some reason, there was a fish tank on a desk in the hall. I thought it best to hold on to it to stop it from falling. Parents had begun to gather at the school gate to take the kids home.
I just can't imagine how their families can cope with everyday life. They must be terrified every time they turn on the TV. We still experience some earthquakes every day and they make me so nervous. Even a tiny rattle frightens me. This might be the biggest one. This might be it. I don't want to lose my family. I don't want to die. My heart beats so fast. I just cannot believe it is actually happening to us. It feels like it's never-ending. But all I can do is send encouragement to the Fukushima 50 and pray for them.
I'm very sorry that you had to go through what you went through. My heart is with you all the way. Yoko Ono Lennon New York City, 11 March 2011 愛する日本のみなさん、私は今、私自身がそこにいて、みなさんと一緒にこの大災害に襲われたように、ぼう然としています。私はつい最近、東京を訪れて、この街がいかに美しく、清潔で、平穏であるかを喜んでいました。私がとても愛しているこの国に、このような大災害が起こることは、まったく予期していませんでした。 ある年、私の夫ジョンとショーンと一緒に東京のホテルにいました。朝のことでした。突然、地震が私たちを襲ったのです。私は当時まだ小さかったショーンをすぐに抱いて、扉が開いたクローゼットの中に入り、しっかりとショーンを抱きしめてうずくまり、南無妙法蓮華経を唱えつづけました。 地震がおさまった後、ジョンは笑って、なぜ、私が扉が開いたクローゼットの中に座っていたのか理解できないと言いました。私はそれは、骨組みによって守られるので、重要なことなのだと言いました、少なくとも、私が子どものときに教わったことでした。ジョンとショーンと私が経験した地震は、みなさんが経験したようなものでは、まったくありませんでした。でも、そのときの記憶で私の身体は今、震えています。 日本の歴史上もっとも甚大な被害を及ぼした地震を経験したみなさんのことを、私は深く感じています。どんなに怖かったでしょう。みなさんのおひとり、おひとりに、私のお見舞いの気持ちと愛を伝えさせてください。どうしてこんな怖いことを、みなさんが経験なさらなければならなかったのだと苦しく思います。私の心は、いつでもみなさんとともにあるのだということを知ってください。 愛をこめて、ヨーコ。 オノ・ヨーコ2011年3月11日 Beautiful In the midst of all the concern and fear, my wife and I received a bit of very happy news: a photo of my mother- and father-in-law.
