Japan is in Our Thoughts




For the people of Japan,  March 11 will likely be remembered much as we in the United States remember 9/11 (September 11, 2001); a day in which unthinkable, horrific events took place.  Too many souls lost, too many more left suffering.

Japan’s recovery begins even amid continuing aftershocks.  Countries from all over the world are offering help.  Assistance, just a trickle in these early stages, will come pouring in over the next days, weeks, and months. The rebuilding of homes, infrastructures and lives will be a long, painful process.

Let us all keep the people of Japan in our thoughts, prayers, and hearts. But let us also rise up and show with our actions that we are one world community and that we do care!

Please give to relief efforts in any manner and to the extent that you are able, both physically and/or financially.  (Do you homework to make sure your choice of charity is a bona fide organization and not a scam!)

Our friends deserve no less than our full support!

Hugs,

Cathy maroon
