Japan

It's truly amazing how much devastation was caused in such a short amount of time. My thoughts have been with the people of Japan this entire Friday. I spent a few months in Japan, many years ago, and it's a beautiful country.

I live in Vancouver, which is prime for an earthquake as well. What would happen here, I wonder? My husband and I are definitely not prepared for such a catastrophic event. Are you?

If you're able to donate check out Global Giving - they make it very easy to donate. From there you can check out the appeal for New Zealand as well. Very rough times. 

Take care everyone. Have a safe weekend.

Tragic and heart wrenching and always hard not to feel helpless to help. Good idea.
Stay safe too....

Sadly there seem to have been many events n sequence which means that support resources and cash are spread thinner. They're really going to need donations.

I do not think many of us have any kind of disaster preparedness...something we should certainly think serious about.
