Feelings of fear and anxiety continue to murmur among the Japanese people two full months after the March 11 disaster. In this climate of uncertainty it is crucial that Japan’s leaders maintain a strong image that broadcasts their steadfast determination to see this crisis through until the end.
Luckily, the ruling Democratic Party of Japan (DJP) is full of politicians who know how to project a powerful public image. The above picture, which was taken during a session of the Diet on May 5, shows three such members of the National Diet in a deep meditative state, undoubtedly reflecting on what can be done to ease the concerns of the public.
Pictured from left to right are Kenji Yamaoka, Yoshito Sengoku, and Former Prime Minister Yukio Hatoyama. It is truly inspiring to see these bold leaders as they dream of a brighter future for Japan.
