Prayers for Japan
Unless you have lived in Japan (I did as a teenager) it is hard to imagine how amazing these people are. In the U.S. (and I'm extremely happy to be an American) we reward individualism and self-reliance, both good things. In Japan, they are all about community and it is amazing to see how a country full of devastating disaster can rise and show us an example of what the world could be. I remember so well how peacefully everyone treated one another and Americans can prove to be challenging. They always treated each other with respect. I don't want to live anywhere else or be anyone else, but a little peace towards one another and a little consideration when you feel like biting someone's head off would sure go along way to making the world a better place day to day.
I guess I will start with the woman in the mirror....
