Japan-One Month Later

A month after Japan was devastated by an 8.9 magnitude earthquake and terrifying tsunami, the nation remains crippled by the aftermath.

Nearly 28,000 have lost their lives, or missing (presumed dead), with a staggering 150,000 left homeless and broken-hearted, with a future full of uncertainties.  The pending and very real threat of radiation from the damage done to the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant is a constant one.  The options are scarce.

Natural disasters and catastrophic events, whether they occur in our country, our neighbour’s or across the world, impact us all in one form or another.  It is times like this that the good people across the globe show their support, empathy and compassion – thru donations and/or prayers.  We have and continue to do that.  These tragedies, while horrible, tend to bring nations together.

Japan’s people have not given up, they continue to fight; their resilience and spirit are admirable and not to be underestimated.  I wanted to write this simply to show that they are still in my thoughts and in my prayers.  I’m hoping that the citizens of the land of the rising sun, can rise from these dark days and once again, see some beauty in the world.
