My heart is breaking with each story, picture and video coming out of Japan. I feel helpless as I hear the tales of those who could not heed the warnings. Tragic reports of the elderly who could not get out of their homes in the 25 minutes from earthquake to tsunami. Hospital workers who had to abandon patients as the wall of water came crashing through. Children ripped from the arms of their parents.

The devastation is horrifying.

I do hope we hear more stories of survival and rescue as the days continue. My thoughts and prayers are with the brave people of Japan. I also hope the world can pull together and help however they can.

    I can’t get myself to even write something coherent. If you’ve seen the video of the giant black skyscraper swaying in Tokyo, just imagine how scary it was for those people swinging 10 feet from side to side.

    That black building was the one I worked in while I was in Japan. I felt several tremors in it.

    I’ve been through Sendai, and now it’s pretty much gone.

    All my friends over there are safe, thank goodness.
