Tsunami survivor Tadao Kamei (from left) and a friend draw the words "Ganbaro!" or "hang in there" on a new billboard lit up with car headlights in Ishinomaki, Miyagi prefecture Sunday. Prime Minister Naoto Kan promised he would never abandon survivors of Japan's tsunami as he tried to focus attention on the future, despite a high-stakes battle at a nuclear plant. His friend decided to make the billboard from recycle materials on his vacant lot.
