The photo shows a cemetery in Sendai, Japan, the town that was hit by a tsunami on March 11, 2011, killing at least 15,000 people, and causing hundreds of thousands to loose their homes. Japan has spent a year cleaning up the damage.
The photo shows one man's shrine to family members lost in the 2011 tsunami. At least 15,000 people lost their lives in Japan and a total of 3,000 people are still missing. March 11, 2012 marks the first anniversary of the massive tsunami that pummeled Japan.
A group of people have been restoring photographs lost in the disaster. They put the soggy, muddy photos into freezers to stop mold from growing, then gently clean them in water. Once dry, the photos are taken around to temporary housing blocks and put on display in the community center for people to identify and claim.
The children did what they'd been taught. When the earthquake hit they ducked under their desks. When it was over they came out to the playground, into the open to be safe from aftershocks. They were all lined up here as instructed when the tsunami washed in, sweeping 74 children and 10 teachers to their deaths.
