Since March 11, I've seen many posters about donation for Japan at many place in San Francisco. I'm more than thankful for all concerns and efforts toward Japan!! Japan shouldn't forget those helps. I've seen many news that the U.S, China, Korea, Taiwan, Russia, France and many countries are helping Japan. Also many individuals are thinking, praying and donating for Japan. amazing!
However I couldn't get the idea of T-shirts which was sold near the Ferry Building. I didn't like the T-shirt. The T-shirts got the image of Hokusai's 'Thirty-six Views of Mount Fuji' and the sentence 'I survived, Tsunami'. This T-shirts seemed not to be for donation. The merchant sold them for his profit as usual. I wished he could just get rid of the sentence!
Let's say, if there were T-shirt which has an image of hurricane and the message of 'I Survived, Hurricane', would you think people are willing to buy it right after hurricane killed many people? I don't think so. The people would be offend by it. I was offended by the T-shrit of Tsunami!!
I don't want to make this type of message in the future. I have to be aware of the massage i make.
