Weekend Edition: Helping Japan

There’s no need to run through the events that rocked Japan recently. March 11th will be marked on the calendar in many people’s hearts and souls forever. If you wish to help you can spare a thought or a prayer and a little donation to our human brothers and sisters who just went through what many of us consider unimaginable.

Japan was able to rebuild after WW2, it was able to rebuild after the Kobe earthquake of 1995 and I am confident these people will rise up to the challenge yet one more time and rebuild their homes and the battered parts of their nation.
