The 8.9 earthquake in Japan has been described as one of the biggest, if not the biggest, in modern Japan. This disaster will no doubt leave irreparable scars and horrid memories in the minds of many, including children and youth who will live on with such burdens.
When the relief operations end and reconstruction starts, many children and youth will themselves in temporary schools with possibly different classmates and teachers. Some may also find themselves staying with family or others in cities away from their destroyed cities. All will be told to try to study but the reality of the devastation will be hard to ignore.
