I know that everyone has seen the terrible images from Japan. It makes me so grateful that all of my family is safe. I really have worried about a story that has not really been covered, and that is "where are the children"? There have been no children in sight. They were all at school or in daycare while their parents were working. Very few had time to get to their children before the tsunami came. So many are hurting from losses of family, their homes, and their jobs. We have always thought of Japan as a rich country but they do need the world's help now.
I will observe the Bloggers Day of Silence on Friday, March 18. I will pray for the people of Japan.
