Stay abreast of what’s going on. Search the news for updated information on the significant challenges facing Japan. Watch the YouTube videos. Contemplate the information and discuss it with your family at dinner. Allow the bitter pill which is this disaster to dissolve in your mouth. It’s how we share in the suffering.

What good does that do? It fixes our vision on the needy, hurt, and scared. Hopefully, it soaks into our pours and initiates white blood cells to wake up and fight off the infection. It’s how we learn to live outside ourselves. It teaches us compassion and trains us to digest the information about nuclear reactors and numbers of missing and monetary levels of damage and turn it into “real” matters of concern…what are the people doing…how are people getting water…how many haven’t slept in the last two days because they haven’t been able to find their spouse or children or neighbors.

We have to cheer for them!
We have to scream and holler!
We have to clinch our teeth and pump our fists in the air!
They are our new favorite sports team...



  1. Yes! Yes! Yes! Thank you for this. It's so hard to wrap my brain around the level of devastation. Praying for the people of Japan.

  2. It feeds our soul when we allow our heart to ache.

    Shame on us if we can help and don't...More shame on us if we don't even let it interrupt our daily routine.
