  •  After Hurricane Katrina I drove down... (6+ / 0-)

    ...with a truck load of cleaning and building supplies.  I wish I could help that directly here, but it's just not possible.

    I've always had a great fondness for the culture and people of Japan.  I had the pleasure of spending two weeks in Seto, a town outside of Nagoya, known for its ceramics and glass.  The images I've seen of the towns destroyed by the tsunami reminded me so much of Seto.  The same scale and mix of old and new buildings.  Not the typical image of urban Japan that gets broadcast to the world.  It makes me so deeply sad to think of all that's been lost, the death and misery.

    The donation is on its way.  Thanks for your kind words.  Good luck to you and your family and to everyone affected by this disaster.
