Really want to send a thought and prayer to those in Japan. The issue and situations which Japan face moving forward is of concern to all. We are no longer an island here in the U.S.; moreover, no country is an island any longer. We all are now interconnected economically and socially. Therefore, every nation should recognize and assist as best they can in sending support be it monetarily or through other means.
This planet, this place we all inhabit is demonstrating continued growing pains and we must finally recognize the ramifications of our own humanity…if not for us for our children. The answers are difficult and there are no easy paths; however, political, economical, and social issues should become a focus utilizing common sense rather than past greed and misrepresentation or self-serving motivation.
I applaud those that seek positive change and have the courage to lead while others procrastinate, stagnate, or ridicule.
Again, though and prayer to those in Japan who have suffered or continue to due to this tragedy.
