Remembering Japan's Tsunami lost lives

Three years after Japan's tsunami, survivors remember their loved ones and voice a terrible feeling of absence.

    March 11 marks three years since a magnitude-nine earthquake and a giant Tsunami struck northeastern Japan.
     
    More than 20,000 people were killed in the disaster. For many who survived, the loss of their loved ones is still felt every day.
