WE GO FORWARD BECAUSE WE HAVE TO
THIS PAGE IS DEDICATED TO THOSE WHO HAVE LOST LIVES IN EVENTS THAT WE WHO ARE UNSCATHED CAN NEVER IMAGINE.
From time to time I will be adding world events that shake our hearts. Sometimes I will also be adding my thoughts about these events.
March, 11, 2011- JAPAN was hit by 8.9 EARTHQUAKE at approximately 2:46 Japan local time. It is now said to be one of the five most largest quakes in known history.
I will be adding media overtime as the tragedy is still unfolding because I have never liked how we only seem to keep the hurting in our minds for as long as it is on the news. This way I hope to paint a picture of not only the disaster but the recovery as well. And in doing so perhaps it will help to keep the people of Japan in minds, and therefore perhaps continue to help them, but hopefully it will also provide all of us here with a little hope for our future. For now… the news is for the most part… hard to watch. It will get better, and even as I say this a video is playing and I hear a little baby of four months was found alive and well within in the rubble. Never have I seen this much destruction. I hope I never will again. But then… we live on earth.
