Japan’s children of the tsunami
BBC
Mar 1, 2012

The next day they checked our radiation levels
My levels were a bit high so I had to take a shower in a tent
They threw away my clothes
My hair was washed and my face was scrubbed
And they threw away my shoes
I loved those clothes so that made me sad
