I pray for


It has been a month since the earthquake in Japan.
There are aftershocks in devastated area still now.
The death toll from the earthquake will climb to twenty thousand.
But many many suffer, they move revival of their life.
The disaster donation, it is the highest the amount of money in Japan.
Many countries people donated.
Thank you, thank you very much.

I think there are some problems in the disaster.
There is many countries people in devastated area, so will it indemnify for them as same as Japanese?
Women, will their health keep clean?
And did sex crime not happen?

Sex crime, it is happen in ordinary days. But every sex crime does not report, so I could not know the fact in ordinary days.
So the days of emergency, sex crime does not report more.

I ponder about every country’s women after the disaster.
Because the disaster is happen every country area, and women’s heath, it need particular to regard and needs.
So I pray every people endangered their life and I ponder their better life.

My thoughts with you

Dear Mayo,

My prayers are with the people of Japan and with you. I have been listening to the news since the disaster struck Japan. I hope the aftershocks ceases soon.

I cannot imagine the pain and suffering this disaster has caused. This is no comparison to the 2004 Tsunami that I had experienced.

May God give every Japanese the power and strength to go through the hardest times and come out stronger with love and determination.

With love

Dear Mayo

Kunichiwa Mayo,
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 certainly do agree that we need to pray and support our sisters and children in Japan and I hope that we can do something as an online community to show our love and support for women and girls in Japan.

With Prayers

Dear Mayo I regularly follow

Dear Mayo

I regularly follow the news since the earthquake and tsunami hit your country - and I kept waiting for reports or updates about the situation of women, but unfortunately I came across very few. Natural disaster expose women to vulnerable condition, I pray your community comes together to protect each women and children from sexual assaults in such tragic times.

The transition period after such a huge tragedy is the toughest ! -- if it's slow people lose hope and motivation and feel more helpless than they felt during the tragedy. The world community must consistently stand by Japan.

I appreciate you shared this post and thought about different circumstances which many might not think about at all.

My wholehearted prayers are with you and your community.
