on another moment of remembrance

Happy belated New Year, I just had to say that as it is, after all, the first post of the year.
I find it somewhat ironic that I’m seeing an article from exactly a year ago popping up on the first page of “recent entries” – that pretty much means, I’ve only written 5 articles within the past year.

That aside.
This is yet another one of those days I can’t help but to mention one moment in my life where I nearly got killed – no, seriously, I’m not joking here and it really isn’t a time to joke either.
I don’t feel all that comfortable considering myself as a victim or to say that I have been victimized, but it’s true – I am victim and a survivor from the Great Hanshin-Awaji Earthquake from 1995.
It’s hard to believe that it’s already been 15 years since then, and even though I’m almost certain that memories from this particular moment in my past will never fade, I fear that I’m eventually going to forget about it somehow.

I feel like there’s a lot I can and want to say, though I can’t seem to come up with a good way to collect my thoughts properly, probably because I feel I’m going to end up repeating a lot of the things I said a year ago.
Again, thanks to anyone who stopped by today to read this – if you’re at all interested, check out Wikipedia or my entry from last year. I’m aware Wikipedia isn’t always the best place to look for accuracy, though from what I’ve seen, it’s relatively accurate.
