Riding The Tsunami Wave
When everyone else ran from the shores and port of Oshima, Japan, sixty-four year old Susumu Sugawara ran toward his boat, setting out at full throttle into an estimated eighty foot tsunami wave Boat Captain. Because of his courage the small island’s population had one boat after the disaster transporting people and communicating with the mainland: Susumu Sugawara’s boat ‘Sunflower’. He’s a shining example of what can happen if you don’t hold onto life so tightly the only thing you have left is to cower or die. Mr. Sugawara chose to save his boat which became a small beacon of hope for other survivors… or to die with his boots on. Oh yeah!
