I came to know that after the Great East Japan Earthquake and Tsunami, a lot of people in the northern Japan started to read "Man's Search for Meaning" written by Viktor Emil Frankl. Japanese title of the book is "夜と霧", that means "Night and Fog".

The huge disaster has sent them into the depths of despair. Still many of them have been in a state in which all hope is lost. It seems for me that they are struggling to search for a ray of hope in the book.

Here's some messages from the book that impressed me the most.

Anytime, there's a meaning of your life.
There's somebody who is waiting for you.
There's something that you need to work on.
Surely, there's something that you can do for them.
