Fighting Fear with Joy!

This young Canadian living in Japan during these horrific days explains why she’s back at the school working. A quote in her blog from “Suheir Hammad: Poems of war, peace, women, power reads as follows: 

She tells stories about the supposedly powerless women who fight in their own way; beating their fear by going on with normal life and finding something to give them joy. Doing simple things like keeping a music school open no matter how dangerous the situation is, that’s how these women kept their souls alive during horrible times.”
