The Tragedy in Japan (Asia In My Heart)

My heart goes out to everyone in Japan. The earthquake that hit was the fifth largest in history and then came the Tsunami.

It fills me with so much hope to know that so many countries are sending search and rescue teams to Japan I really wanted to show the piece reporter Miguel Almaguer did for msnbc about the search and rescue teams but I simply couldn't get it to load. Whenever thinking about how much Japan has lost gets to be too much, I will return to Almaguer piece and remember how many lives will be saved.

The Attorney General lists a few charities that will accept your donations to help Japan's relief events. Of course the Red Cross is one of them. That's where my donation is going.

I'm praying for Japan and I'm grateful for how the world is working together to help. It's so beautiful when we all come together!

I'm feeling restless. I wanna help Japan PHYSICALLY, y'know?

I understand. I want to get in there and help. Screw the langauge barrier.

I just have to keep telling myself, my small donation will help

Tarie- Please don't over do it on the news coverage.

I know what you mean about wanting to help Japan physically - I've signed up to Authors for Japan here in the UK ...one feels so small though. nothing will ever really replace what Japan has lost.

Hey, I blogged about Japan and I linked back to your post because it's got good links to charities that can help. Thanks so much!
