Tsunami Survivors From Japan to Discuss Recovery

High school students will discuss how they coped with the aftermath of the March 2011 tsunami.

Students from five Japanese high schools are scheduled to present their experiences with disaster and recovery from 7 to 8:30 p.m. Monday at Fairleigh Dickinson University's College at Florham campus.

The students will discuss the aftermath of the March 2011 tsunami in Japan at a time when New Jersey is recovering from Superstorm Sandy.

"We feel the message from young people about how they have coped / are coping with the aftermath of a natural disaster is particularly relevant for the people of New Jersey at this time," organizers Karen Bessin and Nori Tadano said.

The program will include time for questions and a chance to meet with the students, according to a flier for the program. The presentation is part of the Kizuna Project of the Laurasian Institute
