Last July, nineteen people with disabilities were killed at a care facility. The suspect, a former member of staff, declared the lives of disabled people to be worthless. With the names of the victims undisclosed for privacy reasons, NHK has set up a website with the approval of their families to shine a light on their lives. As we look at the outpouring of messages from the public, we reflect on what the incident means for us.
