Prayers for Japan

Jump to Comments Prayers for Japan

Watching all of the news over the past couple of days, I couldn’t help but think back to our trip to Tokyo in 2007. While there, apart from the sheer magnitude of the city itself and the mass of humanity within it, I was struck by how controlled everything was; how calmly people went about their day in spite of the millions of others around them, as if with inherent grace. While we never made it outside of Tokyo or anywhere near the more affected Sendai area, I imagine the rest of Japan and its people to be similar in their ability to face their challenges with that quiet strength and grace. Here’s hoping for the best for Japan and those affected by the massive destruction they’ve suffered this week.
