After hearing the story shared by the local teenager, the team participated in creating a giant lantern in honor of the second anniversary of the tsunami that will happen in two days. Each of the four schools that participated in the activity at a local warehouse created one panel that will contribute to a giant lantern that will be featured in a ceremony later in the week.
|Students decide how each individual paper should be placed on their panel.|
- Locals' sincere desire to be heard and not forgotten
- Bravery and strength of communities
- Value of youth and the future of communities
- Japan is currently more recovered than destroyed
- Kizuna should be universally remembered
It was decided that students will tackle small group and individual projects to help spread the stories that they have heard, the experiences they have had, and the knowledge they have collected while in Japan.
