The earthquake and radiation leakage in Tohoku

I will be writing two different diary entries about the earthquake and radiation leakage that happened on the coast of Tohoku Japan on March 11 2011 To show the difference in the type of writing that the reporter has compared to the child I will be writing the reporter's diary entry with the assumption that the work will be published For the other one the child's diary I will be using language that will be less mature and language used through the child's cultural background The purpose of using diary as my text type was to show the effect of culture on language I will be using cultural references to Japan as well as cultural references to the reporters I believe the two different diary entries are written for different purposes The contrast can be seen not only in an intellectual level but also the writing style I am writing these diary entries because I want to express the feelings and experiences of people that were affected by the earthquake I thought of a diary entry would be the best way of recreating the stories and feelings of how those are affected because dairies can be personal and opinionated In this way I can show the difference between what the news and the personal experience of what the people have encountered This might contradict between what the reports that they are making and the true feelings of the people Diary Entry of the News Reporter Dear Diary It is my fifth day reporting at Sendai I felt the Earthquake a few days ago in Japan and it was the biggest earthquake that I have ever experienced in my entire life I contemplate about it now and think that it must have felt even more destructive and intense at Sendai Looking at all the damage now I am very certain that it is true that the impact at Sendai was far greater than of that which we have felt in Tokyo or other regions of Japan
