Praying for the people of Japan
As I write this post, I’m watching the latest news coverage from Japan. The crisis at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant and the risks workers are taking — literally giving their lives — to address the meltdown dangers are giving more reasons to stop, bow our heads, and pray.
All of that is happening while the Japanese experience waves of powerful aftershocks. Some are fleeing Tokyo. And the country is still working to account for those lost and missing since the earthquake and tsunami that struck less than a week ago.
I started this post with the intention of writing about the meaning of resilience and what I learned about that during my extended stays in Japan. That post will wait for another time. Today, I simply want to say…
On behalf of the Garrity family…to those who are enduring this string of disasters…to those who are grieving tremendous loss…to those who are searching for loved ones…you are in our thoughts and in our prayers.
In many ways, we feel helpless…yet we know there are ways we can help…and we will, in every possible way. And that starts with us joining hands, praying for you and pledging our support through this difficult time.
Know that we will work to support you in the long recovery process ahead. Yet, today’s challenges and threats require a focus of their own. So, we pray and we encourage our readers to help in any way you can.
