After seeing the catastrophe following the big eathquake and subsequent tsunami in Japan I felt compelled to send my condolences to our LJ friends from Japan. Specifically Junji. I don’t want to say too much about it except that my heart goes out to the overwhelming number of people over there who must be suffering from this great tragedy. Recovery is going to be long and hard and I hope they will get a lot of international help with this and individual donations too.

Ditto Mike.
The company I work for is headquartered in Japan so I am thinking of my colleagues. The NZ office is based in Christchurch so there were many messages of support during the recent earthquake there from the Japanese. Now the situation is reversed in just a few weeks. My sincerest best wishes to our Japanese woodworking colleagues and to everyone in the area.

I thought the same thing Mike. Wondering how Junji iand his family are and I have a nephew that works for Kawasiki. He lives in CA by flys back and forht all the time. Haven’t heard from my sister, she probably doesn’t know anything and may not be by email. Edit: Looks like my grandson and Seaside, OR dodged the bullet ;-))

My thought and prays for our Lumberjocks friends and all those near and far that are effected by this disaster. One can’t help but ask are we heading towards something. Events like Libya, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, and now Japan. I believe we are heading to the second comming. I believe the time is near. Everyone is in my thoughts and prayers.

Also thinking of Junji, and of all effected there. Unbelievable photography coming out of disaster areas. It’s just hard to believe such a huge quake, and so recently after Christchurch.

It’s very thoughtful of you to bring this up on LJ. Thank you. I lived in Tokyo for a few years and visited the Sendai area about 25 years ago and spent a few wonderful days visiting Matsushima and the ancient Zuiganji temple. There have been many natural disasters recently, but having been to a place really brings it home.
