海外からのメール

東日本大震災、そう名前が決まった。それまで、東北地方太平洋沖大地震、東北東関東大震災、など、いくつかの呼び方がされていた。そして、2週間たったころ、正式に各社が「東日本大震災」と報道し始めた。

3月11日は金曜日だった。
仕事上、海外の人とのメールのやりとりがあるのだけれど、週明けから、彼らのメールにはかならず、日本に住み日本で働く私たちへのお見舞い、そして気遣い、心配、応援、いろいろなメッセージが添えられてきた。
私たちは、交通機関が100%動かない中でも、事務所への出社は時差さえあったものの殆ど全員が出社した。帰りは、間引き運転を心配して、まっすぐ帰る。そして、また翌朝に備える。
そういう私たちの生活を思ってか、穏やかに、しかし、強い気持ちを持って、仕事を滞りなく進めてゆこうとする私たちの姿勢への驚きのような言葉が添えられているときもあった。

3月は期末でもある。
ワタシは期末として意識はしないものの、3月31日に仕上げなければいけない仕事があった。それも、ドイツとイギリスとの合同作業、そして日本側スタッフと調整しながらの仕事だった。3月11日のこともあり、その締め切りを再考してはどうかと、投げかけたくなったときもあった。でも、彼らにとって、日本での仕事・作業が遅れることは、グローバルへの約束をキープ出来なかったことになる。
彼らは締め切りについては何も言わない。しかし、アチラに渡したボール(宿題の答え)がなかなか返ってこない。こちらから、3月31日で本当にそちらは大丈夫か?という確認も幾度かした。すると、「あと2日あるじゃない」とか「まだこちらは11時よ、大丈夫!」というような返信があった。そういうメールを、朝一番に見る、そんな毎日が1週間続いた。

でも、雨ニモマケズ、風ニモマケズ、
ならば、予期しなかったことが起こっても、もともと予定していたことはちゃんと遂行しなくては! と仕事を進めていき、3月31日にはめでたく完了。ドイツ側もイギリス側も追込みがすごかった。そして、4月1日の朝、彼らからのメールを読んで、1つの仕事をやり終えた充実感をかみしめ、その日の夕方には、電話会議でお互いにご苦労様とねぎらいあった。

あちらこちら、いま、地震は日本列島の場所を選ばずに、私たちを揺さぶっている。携帯に着信するエリアメールの音にビクッとしながらも、日々の仕事は進めてゆかなければならない。海外に対して、私たちは大丈夫、ちゃんと仕事してます、そう伝えること。少しでも日本の経済を応援することにつながれば、そう思う。

Greetings! I know this is somewhat off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this site? I'm getting fed up of Wordpress because I've had issues with hackers and I'm looking at options for another platform. I would be fantastic if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.

Explain for the child exactly what a bank is - that it really is a place to put your hard earned money for safekeeping and it may gain interest as time passes. Switzerland is renowned for opening banking accounts from non-residents.

In other words, you should opt for a super fast Internet connection only if you plan on using the Net on a daily basis and for demanding tasks. This cable broadband provides bi-directional data communication through radio frequency channels like a cable TV infrastructure. If we used that signal to drive a speaker to run in the same 1000hz frequency with the same amplitude, we would hear that sound through the speaker.
