I truly hope all the PIPpers in Japan are safe.
My thoughts are with those who lost everything.

Unbelieveble when you see it happen.

Like scattered leaves...my words will flow

I'm watching the news too, Titia. This is horrible.

I did a story on a young man here in Kansas whose home and family are in Kanagawa Japan. I can only imagine his grief as he watches the news, helpless. At this time, prayer seems so little, but it's all we have to offer.

Watching and trembling! Such a devastation. And the nuclear threats? In all of this frightening event I must admire the calmness and dignity of Japanese people. They are used to earthquakes, but this was the strongest ever measured ...
Thinking of Earl Brinkman, hoping he is fine.
And thinking of dear James in Hawaii too ... the tsunami is expected to hit soon ... But they have been advised.

Yes, it is so sad to see. My nephew is there. He is in the Navy.

The damage in the Tohoku region is beyond description.  Fortunately we live in Kansai, which is a fair distance away.  But the misery plays on tv, which saddens me.  When the earthquake occured it was a minor quake in my region but peculiar in its nature.  Usually small quakes finish quickly but this one lasted longer than normal prompting an acquaintance to say that he suspected that a major earthquake had occurred far away from us.  He was correct.  There is the danger of after quakes which will cause further damage or death.  People that have lost their homes will need government assistance and may be living in cheaply constructed shelters for some time.  It may take years to recover. The tsunami alerts have been lifted for our area.

We're glad you're safe, Earl. A young Japanese student at our aviation school said that his parents were not in the direct area, but that his grandfather was. He feels so helpless, being so far away from home right now. It's very sad.

A friend in Tokyo complains about train stoppages and the rationing of power.  Her parents house was also damaged and has a huge crack in it.  Fortunately I know of no one who was injured.
