I came across a remarkable video, “World Water Day 2013”, posted by Haruna Akashi to YouTube. Nako Akashi, a young 15 year old student in Japan produced and narrates the video herself. I’m so impressed with Nako’s work that I feel her insight on water’s impact on our world, should be shared.
Nako is a junior high school student who enjoys music, painting, designing and photography. The devastation of the March 11, 2011 tsunami in Japan had a profound effect on Nako and she says, ” It’s time for us to help the water. The power of just one person may seem very little, but it all counts – one for all – all for one. I believe this is the international rule for everyone.”
My comments to Nako on her video: ‘Congratulations, Nako, on your remarkable video. I feel your work is award worthy!!! I’m so impressed that I am going to present your video on my blog to celebrate World Water Day 2013. Best of luck in all your future endeavours. You are a wonderful ambassador for Japan as a young person with deep-felt compassion and vision. You will find my blog on WordPress as Rainsoftottawa.’
