Image Caption: People hold hands as a monk speaks during a ceremony for tsunami victims at the Koshoji Temple on March 11, 2012 in Rikuzentakata, Japan. Of the temple's 500 parishners, 302 were killed by the tsunami. On the one year anniversary, the areas most affected by last year's March 11, 2011 earthquake and subsequent tsunami that left 15,848 dead and 3,305 missing according to Japan's National Police Agency, continue to struggle. Thousands of people still remain without homes living in temporary dwellings. The Japanese government faces an uphill battle with the need to dispose of rubble as it works to rebuild economies and livelihoods. Across the country people are taking part in ceremonies to pay respects to the people who lost their lives. (Photo by Chris McGrath/Getty Images)
