Japan: 16th Anniversary of Great Hanshin Earthquake

Categories: East Asia, Japan, Disaster

Today is the 16th anniversary of the Great Hanshin earthquake [1], and many prayed for lives lost. Blogger nikisuke [2] quietly reflected on the passing of the years and quotes a Tweet by @hannarry [3]: “That earthquake wasn't a tragedy where 6,434 lives were lost, but an earthquake where the single tragedy of losing your loved one happened 6,434 times.”
