Video Messages to Chicago
“You can speak well if your tongue can deliver the message of your heart.”
– John Ford
Next March 11 will be the 5th anniversary of the Great East Japan Earthquake. Fukushima was affected not only by the earthquake, but also by the disasters at the nuclear power plant.
The name “Fukushima” is known around the world now. Many people wonder about the situation here. Is everyone OK? What will happen in the future?
On Wednesday, December 9, the first-year students of the Department of Liberal Arts for Career Development (CE) made short video messages to the world. These messages were prepared for the Kizuna exhibition in Chicago, a yearly memorial of the Great East Japan Earthquake.
The CE students each wrote their own messages. They wrote about their experience five years ago, how their lives have changed, and what their dreams are for the future. Many of the students tried their best to speak all in English!
Each original message will be uploaded to YouTube and seen by people around the world. Some messages will be shown at the Kizuna exhibition in front of people from Chicago.
The Kizuna video project was a chance for the CE students to make real messages from Fukushima. Every student did their best to communicate from their heart, and their messages will be felt around the world.
