Dear Japan... From Taiwan

Japan was the first to come to Taiwan's aid back when Typhoon Morakot disaster washed away entire villages...



and I was really moved when I saw:




Never knew my first time drawing Hetalia characters would be for such saddening situation...

Taiwan donated 40 billion Yen for Japan disaster relief, and sent tons of first aid equipments to Japan... even though Taiwan and Japan has a rather ambiguous relationship. Officially we broke off diplomatic relations because of P.R.O.C, but we people still love each other...


Back when Japan owned Taiwan, Japan saw potentials in Taiwan and taught her a lot... Even now, after the war, many Taiwanese people feel grateful toward Japan for what they did.


I also love Japan for many reasons. It has a special place in my heart.


"fight & smile" is a quote by one of the surviving victims when interviewed by reporter...

Japan people are honorable and have such strong hearts. Did you see how organized and united they are when devastating disasters hit?! I sincerely hope they will get through this soon.

Love, from Taiwan.

From one artist to another: Please read my message until the end. I would like to ask something of you. You drew a picture in regards to "Japan 2011-03-11". I would linke to use your piece of art for my project. I started this project on facebook, you will find it under Pray & Remember 2011-03-11 or follow the link. I don't want that catastrophe to be forgotten. Too many Japanese had to give their lives. I want to show them respect - the dead as well as the survivors. Let us both achieve something. Of course your name will be mentioned - it is your piece of art after all. Even if you do not want to participate in this project I would be more than happy if you had a look at the project. I am thankful for every member. I want to reach out to as many people as possible. I thank you very much for reading until the end. Thank you, my friend. www.facebook.com/groups/221531…

Thank you for the invitation, but I have to decline since I used Hetalia characters here and I remember around the time of 2011 disaster artists on pixiv made it clear to NOT draw about the disaster with Hetalia characters since it kind of lacked respect...

Good day! Many thanks for your response! I understand. That's okay, I understand this statement. Nevertheless, I thank you.

When this happened, I pray as much as I could for Japan. It was all I could do at the time. I didn't have extra money to donate to Japan, and I really, really regret it, even though I know that it wasn't because I didn't want to.
I really wish I had money at the time to help Japan rebuild its civilzation...
I'm horrible. I hate myself even more for not being able to help them.
I'm really hard on myself, and always have been, so I'm really sorry if you people who are reading this think that I'm being too hard on myself. But that's just how I am... :iconjapansulk-plz:
