Earthquake in Japan.


This earthquake’s devastated area, and especially damaged area, there is the coldest of all the area in Japan. In March, there is very cold still now.
Sufferer, they evacuate to refuge, there is very cold. Heating is there, but it is not enough, because they save oil, and oil is also not enough.
Still now, there are many people that grave fears are felt for about their safety and they were not found. And there are aftershocks still now.
Devastated area, and sufferer, they want many supply.
Not devastated area people, they can donate and they can agree to an appeal for blood donation. We can do those, we can only do those.
We entrust on expert, now is the time.

And in Fukushima, there are nuclear power plants. Those have many risks.
It would be heavily covered many countries. So we absolutely have not to send groundless rumor!! It is very importance thing.

Heart of Love

I have been reading your posts for a while now. I see the love and passion you have for people. There is just so much you can say and I encourage you to say it, let your voice be heard. I want you to know that through your voice, you just may not know how many people have gotten rescued, could be hundreds, thousands or millions.
May God the creator Save the people of Japan.



I believe everybody has the potential to live a better life. Given the Opportunity, Education and Motivation ANYONE can become someone admirable. Nobody is a NOBODY, everybody is SOMEBODY.

Agreeing in Heart and Mind

Beatrice, this is the best advice for all of us and has a lot to do with our hearts and minds melding together. In disasters, the best should rise to help and assist--but sometimes it doesn't happen that way. While I don't have much money, I try and get as much together as I can with others. Together we can making things happen.

Be strong!

Dearest Mayo,

I have been following the news since the start of the earthquake. My tears just fell every time I watch the suffering of the Japanese people in these very tragic times. I have lots of Japanese friends and I feel so sad thinking about them.

All I can say is keep up your strength! I' m confident that the Japanese people can surpass and overcome !

wish you all the best and you are in my prayers! Be strong!

love much,

I am glad to connect with you here. I was in Japan during the crisis and I just managed to write about the disaster through my eyes. I admire the resilience, courage and strength of Japanese especially in times like this. I certainly do agree that we need to pray and support our sisters and children in Japan and I hope that we can brainstorm and do something as an online community to show our love and support for women and girls in Japan.

With Prayers
