Overflowing emotions

13 Mar

My heart is bleeding for Japan.  We went to a celebration of life today.  My husband’s Aunt turned 90.  It was a lovely party filled with her friends and family. Her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren were there.  It was funny and touching.


I kept thinking about families that would not be able to celebrate such moments with their families anymore.

    So sad for Japan and all those families experiencing the loss of their homes and family members.

    What is unfolding in Japan is surely a horrific national tragedy. For their leaders to say this is the biggest challenge they have faced since World War II says much–70 years of stability.
    We can do what we can for them–send money, lend help, and pray.

      Yes, it’s so overwhelming. I’ve already made donations to a couple of organizations. The other thing I can do is bear witness. I can watch what is happening without turning away and be there. It is the very least I can do.
