The grief from losing many lives of children never cease. They were our treasure, and the symbol of our future. This photo exhibition aims to visually tell fractions of their stories about how they went through the day. While the children who survived through the disaster become our bright future, those who didn’t will continue to exist as our belief in our hearts. Because I felt it is becoming “something that happened in the past” after the 5 years, I am wishing to once again share these photographs with you. I hope they will remain in your heart for as long as they could.
