    Those are some powerful images. I applaude the artist for doing this for the children and for giving them voice.

    This is a quote from I think the last 3 or 4, what a heartbreak.
    As well as living with the nuclear accident of 11th March 2011, a few weeks after this drawing was made it was reported on TV that 640 tons of highly radioactive sewage waste from Koriyama had been secretly dumped near his village against the wishes of the council.Then on 29th July, a major flood hit the valley.
