I’ve spent the last 3o hours reading or watching the news. Every time I see the images and videos of the tsunami my heart breaks. I still can’t believe what is happening up north. It is especially strange, because life is so normal here in Okayama. People seem to be going about their everyday business, while the northern half of the country is completely devastated.
I have experienced an outpouring of love and concern for my safety and I am so grateful. I am safe and life is normal. However, there are millions of people whose lives have been turn upside down. Please keep these people in your thoughts and prayers.
