It’s with an anxious, heavy heart I’m blogging today. By now I’m sure you have heard and seen the horrific imagery coming out of Japan. The earthquake struck just off the coast where I used to live in Japan, Shiogama, Miyagi Prefecture of Tohoku, Japan, just about 15 minutes by train from Sendai. Thankfully, my wife’s family has checked in and they are all okay, but I’m still waiting to hear back from many friends in the worst hit areas and a few in Tokyo. Thank you to everyone that has contacted me to send their prayers and kind words. For those of you actually in Japan or concerned with those over there like myself, check out Gakuranman and Surviving In Japan for a great collections of helpful links.
Also, I know this is probably too early, but especially with my connection with the Miyagi area, I’d love to be involved in helping things get back on track there. If you are aware of any mission, church, temple or any group leading a trip over there, please let me know. Whether I’m just needed to document as a photographer or working on something else, I’d love to help. In the meantime, here are some ways we can all help.
Again, thank you to everyone for your support and kind words. It means a lot to me and to everyone in Japan or connected to those in Japan.
