Praying for Japan

I've been home sick the last few days so have seen alot of the tsunami news. What a heart wrenching thing to witness. I cannot even imagine being there. I have noticed though in the midst of all that chaos the people there seem to be peaceful for lack of better words. What I mean is they are still kind to one another and no looting and no fighting. They are waiting patiently in lines for hours for food and water. I can't help to think if it was America there would be the looting and the fighting and the complaining that help wasn't happening fast enough etc etc......I think about Katrina and all the horrible press and how some people were so disrespectful. Maybe we should learn from this tragedy over in Japan. Not trying to slam our country, just an observation , and  I love our country so no hate mail please!!  I could go on but why get up on my soap box, I have said my 2 cents. I pray for the families that lost everything including the ones they loved.


  1. You know, I am so glad you shared this!! It is so true and needed to be brought to our attention. I hadn't even thought of how they appeared but you hit the nail on the head. It is the saddest situation I've seen in many years. Hope you get to feeling better.
    Love, Deb R

  2. One of my close friends is from Japan, and currently living there (she was a foriegn exchange student throughout high school and college and was planning on moving to Canada this summer). She and her family are okay at the moment, but they appreciate everyone's thoughts and prayers. And I am sure everyone else there does as well. Thank you for thinking of all of the people in Japan. I have already started hearing "Godzilla" jokes, and I know that some people think they are just lightening the mood, but all it does to me is turn my stomach when I hear or see them.

    But all in all, beautifully said on your part.
