We are devastated by all that is happening to Japan.
Such history and beautiful culture illuminates this land.
Despite the impact and, I’m told, it’s continuous aftershocks the people have remained strong.
Though hurt and saddened the glow of the land can still be seen in those endangering themselves for clean up and restoration.
Tokyo, not far from the disaster, is actually a favorite city of mine that continues to inspire us all.
God’s speed to the country, it’s people, my friends and tranquility.
Have yall freakin seen the news … As the death toll in Japan continues to mount in the wake of last week’s deadly tsunami, Japanese officials are dealing with the economic aftershocks as well as a growing nuclear crisis. All my prayers and condolences to the victims… i just hope their expert engineer’s will stand up to the NUCLEAR PLANTS…
How You Can Help Japan’s Earthquake, Tsunami Relief Efforts
Right before 3 p.m. Friday (March 11), Japan was hit by an 8.9 magnitude earthquake–it’s largest quake in at least 100 years–followed by massive tsunamis striking its coastal cities. Hundreds were killed and thousands have been displaced. The nation is in dire need of international support. Here’s how you can help:
Donate To The Red Cross
They have relief stations located across the country that will assist with citizen evacuation and medical needs.
Help Find Loved Ones
From the Red Cross:Inquiries concerning U.S. citizens living or traveling in Japan should be referred to the U.S. Department of State, Office of Overseas Citizens Services at 1-888-407-4747 or 202-647-5225.
Stay Informed & Spread The Word
The Hawaii Red Cross is tweeting national announcements from Japan and instructions on how to find U.S. citizens in the area. You can also use the hashtag #hitsunami to request help or keep others informed on how to help. DoSomething.org iss asking anyone who can’t donate to fold and upload a picture of a paper crane to show your support for those affected by this disaster.
Most disaster relief organizations are advising against sending care packages, food or clothing to the area at this time. Your $5 or $10 will go a much longer way. You can find additional donation options on Network For Good.
