My heart goes out to all of the folks who have had to be a part of the devastation that has gone on and is continuing to happen in Japan. As I watched the news accounts and saw the photos it really hit hard as to just how fragile this planet is we call home. And also just how quickly our lives can change in a heartbeat. I feel so bad for all the folks who have lost loved ones and their homes and are having to try and deal with the aftermath of the earthquake and the tsunami. Not to mention having now try to control the damage from the nuclear reactors.
I do not feel now is the time for me to express my opinions as to the God many westerners worship and to why such things happen to innocent people if this God could have stopped it from happening. It is also not the time for one to extol the safty issues of nuclear power. Nor do I feel is it time for any political figures to try and use this tragedy to extol their beliefs or agendas on anyone. But I am sure it is time for all of humanity to come together and try to bring relief to as many of our brothers and sisters in Japan as we possibly can. I am proud that my country has already started helping to deal with this disaster as the U.S. always does in times of crisis.Even tho our national debt is crazy right now we are still quick to spend money and send supplies to the folks in Japan.And you know what, I believe that Japan would do the same for us if the situation was reversed.I cant help but think what if everybody in the world would pitch in we could overcome this tragedy a lot more quickly.If everybody would just stop all their "WARS" ( and yes I am including the U.S.) for a week and instead send all that money they are spending on funding the wars, and use it instead to help Japan rebuild as quickly as posssible. I know I sure dont have all the answers but I remain adamant in my belief that ALL of us are ONE! And when we realize that maybe we will end our wars with each other and the next tragedy that hits anywhere in the world can be handled more efficently.And maybe you are thinking I wish I could help those folks right now. Well, I believe you can.The options are many but one thing Im sure all the folks there could use would be our prayers and thoughts for a brighter time that will arrive someday. So I would ask all of you good folks to keep all the folks who are affected by this tragedy in your thoughts and prayers.I will close with these words for all my fellow human beings not only in Japan but worldwide--I love you and I accept perfect peace and understanding for all of us. "HUGS" to all of you.
