---- in the air of Japan and everywhere in the world ----
At the end of last year I visited Ishinomaki, one of the cities which were severely damaged by 3.11 Earthquake/Tsunami, and met with people who are still living in provisional housing. I strongly felt that the restoration of the town will take time and recovering of disaster victims' peace of mind will take longer time.
A lot of people flew up "Kites of Hope" on 3.11 last year, one year anniversary day of terrible disaster, at 22 places in Japan and 5 places in th world including Gaza, Palestine to give prayers for victims and to show up solidarity to them. Local media introduced the event at some places. Please have a look at the sites below to learn how the campaign started and to see the great result of the campaign.
Let us fly "Kites for Hope" again this year to exhibit our sense of solidarity to people in affected areas who are still suffering from uneasiness of daily life. I hope bigger number of people, not only in Japan but in the world, will join to this campaign because more kites will be able to give bigger hope to more people and make them "Chin Up". Since 3.11 will be Monday this year, better to hold kite-flying event either on 3.9(Sat) or 3.10(Sun).
This site is opened to promote the movement and to report day-by-day progress of the campaign.
Please pray with us, spread the news to involve more people and TRY TO ORGANIZA fly-kites event with your friends AT YOUR PLACE. There is a lot of things you can for victims.
