It has been one week since the massive earthquake and tsunami in Japan. It is inspiring to see that even during such horrific tragedy, the Japanese show great strength and dignity. One news report that particularly touched my heart was of the firefighter who continued to help with search and rescue even after finding out his entire family is gone. You can see the video here. I think if I was put in the same situation I would not be able to continue on. If you are going to donate please beware that there are many scams out there and always donate to a reputable charity. You can find a list of legit charities here or here.
My thoughts and prayers go out to the people of Japan.
