JAPAN NEEDS OUR HELP & all you have to do is like my Japan Relief Page on facebook to help pay it forward.
Japan was hit very hard, with two natural disasters in one. A tsunami and an 8.9 earthquake that shook the world. If you aren’t one of the people that were in Japan to have felt it firsthand, then you are like me and probably felt the shaking in the comfort of your pajamas this morning while watching the news’ coverage. I sat here this morning and still now, late at night, and just am beside myself at how scary it is for Japan and its people.
Yesterday I was crying about my own life and how I don’t know what my purpose is in life, and this morning I wake up to this natural disaster in Japan. How can I be so selfish? I’m truly embarrassed. I’m healthy and able-bodied and have lots of loved ones in my life. Today I regret my tears from yesterday. Now my tears are for the lives lost in Japan and for the families that are here and cannot get in touch with their loved ones.
I sit here in the comfort of my living room this morning and am watching on the news of the disaster taking place and the aftermath the tsunami and the 8.9 earthquake has left on Japan and its people. I watch as houses are floating away right in front of my eyes. Cars are swimming by instead of driving. Little kids are at school under their desks frightened for their lives. And, most importantly, precious lives are gone in an instant, nowhere to be found.
Mother Nature has a funny way of working itself and I question why She does the things She does. Did we do something so horrible to have the earth crumble around us and water come in the form of huge waves so large that they just wipe out people and cities like it’s nothing? It’s just insane and truly unbelievable.
