Disaster in Japan 3/16/11
March 17, 2011
It has been very difficult for me to digest what have been happening in Japan. No one has prepared for this huge disaster. More than 10.000 people died and are missing, uncountable people lost their houses, boats, cars and everything, and more than 300.ooo people have evacuated and are having very difficult days at rescue places, mostly at school gymnasium and community centers. It has been very cold with snow in disaster region and people have been suffering because they don’t have heat, food, gas, water—. And last few days nuclear plants have been in the big threat to many people.
The earthquake and Tsunami attacked to the northeast coast line facing to Pacific Ocean. People have been making living as fisherman, farmers–. Their lives were quiet and peaceful in the beautiful coast areas. That is gone. The lands are filled with salty water. The nice nighborhood is gone. The streets are filled with massive mud and debris. As our Emperor said in his speech our people have been taking care of each other with humbleness and modesty in this beautiful country. I am so proud of them. Even in this hard time people think of others first.
I and my husband are going to play a recital at First United Methodist Church in Pasadena on Saturday April 2 at 4pm. We will collect the donation and send it to Japan. I hope you can come, but if not please donate any money to your favorite fund raising institute. Your donation will help people in Japan. Please pray for People in Japan and help them.
