I have lots of things I’d like to post on this site but I find pretty much everything including links to images of the devastation in Japan somehow distasteful at this time. What’s going on in Japan is overwhelming to me as I sit here in a warm house in rural Connecticut.
In the face of all of this, people in Japan are standing patiently in line for food and water and medical attention even as their houses, villages, and families are gone and there is great uncertainty about their future.
Japan may seem like a relatively formal society compared with the United States but that formality coupled with considering the group before the individual is going to help them survive this terrible tragedy and come out whole on the other side.
I’m thinking of Japan, a place I’ve been and hope to return to.
