I'll be joining other bloggers for a day of silence tomorrow in hopes of raising awareness and some money for the victims of the ongoing crisis in Japan. I've felt a bit sad all week and in shock over the total devastation and continuing scare surrounding the nuclear power plants.
This country holds a special place in my heart. My mom spent four years of her childhood in Japan and my grandparents moved back there when I was in elementary school. I was lucky to be able to visit every year for six years. Thankfully, our family friends are all safe and I continue to pray for them along with other military friends that are stationed in Japan right now. The people of Japan are kind, caring and beautiful and I pray that God can show them some mercy. I spotted this touching prayer over on A Subtle Revelry and it brought tears to my eyes.
