[Column] Even if the entire world was contaminated

Some of the readers say Fukushima DIary reports too much bad news, should feature more good news to take balance.
I think that’s true in a sense. However, nobody dies by missing good news. They may die if they are not informed of bad news.
but it doesn’t mean Fukushima Diary pushes despair.

Recently some of the readers say, now the entire world is already contaminated, there’s no place to go.
Actually, if you turn on a heater, the room gets warm. but no one keeps sitting on the stove for 1 hour.

It’s like a russian roulette, but I think we should do our best to live healthily.
Even if we do our best, we might pull the joker in the end. This is what they call fate.

However, giving all up even if you still have some room to improve is negligence of living a life.
Life is one irreplaceable thing.
You can take care about what to eat, where to live, and maybe you can move out of Japan if you really try. Write down all the ideas on paper, and we should try all of them from the top of the list.

This is the attitude of Fukushima Diary, which is slightly different from pushing despair.

Giving up your life is not heroic at all. Even if you lose your limbs, you still can bite. Even if you lose your sight, you still can smell. Even if you have only 1 second left to live, you still have 0.5 second to the halfway. Let your struggle talk.
