“A World Hand in Hand”
Do you know Ms. Taylor Anderson? Today, I’d like to share how her story has influenced me.
A week after March 11th, 2011, my mom gave me a newspaper article. It wasn’t front-page news, but she
felt it was important for me to read it. It said that an American ALT, named Taylor Anderson, disappeared in
the tsunami and was later confirmed to be deceased. She devoted herself to letting her students go back home
safely. By the grace of her, all her students were safe. But on her way home, she was caught in the strong
and awful tsunami.
After I finished reading it, I couldn’t stop crying. My mom was also crying. She must have been very
scared, I thought. I was extremely impressed. What a touching story! Then, I asked myself, “Can I devote
myself to others? Will I be able to make myself understood, across language and cultural barriers, like she
Although Ms. Anderson may have been one of the many ALT teachers in Japan, we know she didn’t die in
vain. Later another article was published. It said that her family and friends decided to send her favorite
books to Japan. These books have given her students great pleasure. Even though her time on Earth was
cut short, she made lots of wonderful relationships and brought and continues to bring people together. It’s
like she is communicating from the next life. I hope, you can understand her extraordinary love for others,
the passion she had for caring, sharing and building relationships.
The more I thought about her, the better I felt. I recalled my short stay in Canada two years ago; I stayed
with the Wu family who were also hosting another international student from China. Back in Japan, I was
worried about my life in Canada. I was worried not only about my English, but also about my relationships
with my host family and future friends. How different would it be? Would they accept me as part of their
family? Would I be able to make friends? How would I communicate? Many questions raced through my
At the airport, when I arrived, my host mother Mrs. Wu and the Chinese exchange student, Amanda, greeted
me. I was so nervous. They said “Hello” to me with a genuine and sincere smile. Their smile and sincerity
eased my tension. At the same time though, I couldn’t express myself well in English. But when I had a
problem, Amanda was always there for me and if she wasn’t there the Wu family were there to help me. And
soon, using English, we were surprised to become such good friends. They were wonderful and nothing like I
feared. I was moved by their generosity and amazing acts of kindness. Their hospitality and love for others
were valuable lessons for me. As were those from Ms. Anderson’s story.
So, what kind of dreams did Ms. Anderson have? Gradually, I associated myself with her. She must have
had dreams just like mine. She must have enjoyed meeting people from other cultures and helping them if
they needed it, whether it was through her words or actions.
Communicating through actions is just as important as
communicating with words. Ms. Anderson’s helping hands
have extended beyond her. She has made bonds between
her family, friends and her students, stretching across
oceans. It will never be forgotten and I think they are the
essence of Ms. Anderson’s dream. I wish I could reach out
my helping hands to someone I don’t know, like the Wu family
in Canada did for me and Ms. Anderson’s family did for her
I know it’s very difficult to understand and communicate
with people from different cultures. So, what can we do?
Perhaps, the answer is in our hearts. I will follow mine.
