For Japan with Love
It's incredibly hard to comprehend what it would feel like to have your whole world destroyed in an instant. For the survivors in Japan, learning to deal with this situation must be a painstakingly hard process.
The number of casualty is heartbreaking, but the number of people that are left homeless and in some cases without a family is even greater. People of Japan that need all the help they can get, to recover and rebuild their world little by little.
Because Australia is a day in advance of America, when I learned about this wonderful initiative by bloggers Ever-Ours and Utterly Engaged, it was already March 18th. So if you were wondering why you missed me yesterday, it's because I decided to take a vow of silence in the honor of the people of Japan.
The world is going through some drastic changes. In a few months only we went through devastating floods, cyclones and earthquakes of never before seen magnitudes, and a tsunami that have left thousands dead and hundreds of thousands evacuated.
What we need to learn from this is that none of us are safe from what the world is preparing for us next. So please donate generously, as if the people of Japan were your neighbors, family, or friends.
