Please watch over and be there for children.

As lifeline utilities have gradually been restored and the warmer weather comes in, you may be relaxed little by little.
Spring is the season when children start their new school lives.
At this time, most adults may feel like cheering up children and saying to them, “Do your best!”.
However, most of the children who were affected by the earthquake are still emotionally confused.
Please don’t cheer up the children too much and never say, “Go for it!” or “Be cheerful not to make other people feel sad.”
Those children have already done their best. They have been aware of their surroundings not to bother them, and as a result, many of them have heartache.
Please warmly watch over the children. When they start talking about something, you should carefully listen to them until the end and seriously accept their messages.
