What a beautiful Japanese heart! Love the logo/national flag.

I came across this beautiful logo on Ameblo (Japanese blogging platform) the other day.

I wanted to share it and the story written by a Japanese blogger.

The blogger is from Kesenuma, one of the worst hit areas in Japan following the earthquake and tsunami.

You can see the original here but I’ve included the text below.

——————

See a lot of messages arrive from one of the world,
I almost cry every day very for joy.

Though I do not strongly feel what world and oneself are related to, I am strong at all and, in the everyday life, just take in it from the back of this major earthquake.

With all the feeling that I received from all of you of the world and,
I designed the Japanese national flag “Japanese flag = HINOMARU “.

Japan attracts a lot of heart.

For a lot of big love that arrived from the world, Japan is surrounded.

Please use it for your freedom if I liked it.

When I want an illustration of the big size including EPS, give me a message.

I transmit a message by an E-mail.

If English is wrong, I’m sorry.

A hometown is KesennumaCity.

With all the love to all of you and.

The most beautiful thing to watch can also be the most painful thing to experience.

Nearly one-year later after 3.11

 

In the weeks that come, the tv, the web, the conversations, the memories will be flooded with 3.11 stories and experiences as the one-year memorial quickly approaches.

 

And while for some it will just be a yearly newsflash and for others the most significant event of their lives, for everyone that’s seen the footage it is clear that the worst things can happen to the best people, the best things can rise from the worst situations and no matter how terrible the circumstances, there is always a reminder of hope in the smallest of flowers blossoming every spring.
