Distraught. I don’t even know what to say or feel. Numb. I can’t express it. RIP Hana Kimura. Such a wonderful human being. The gaijin helper. All the potential. A beautiful soul. Kind. I just can’t even put into f*cking words how upsetting this is. I hope you found peace.

Hana Kimura lit up every room she walked in. She was sunshine and one of the most selfless human beings I’ve ever met. I’m one of the lucky ones who got to experience first hand how special and loving of a person she is. Hearts are hurting right now. I’m hurting right now.
