Doctor of science Akira Miyawaki said, "I'm only 84 years old and working is the proof of my life.
And I'll continue to plant trees with you for more 30 years."
I read this article in a magazine.

This spring inhabitants, volunteer, former prime minister, and a environment minister planted saplings
of evergreen broadleaf tree on the ground buried woody rubble of the last huge dizaster.
It meant the beginning of the "making a immortal forest" plan.
Dr. Miyazaki surveyed the stricken area and proposed to make an embankment of the forest.
He negotiated directly with a incumbent prime minister.
The head of the stricken area resonated it and some big enterprises supported positively.

When I read the article, I was touched and sure that Japan would revival.
