The Power of Nature

It's amazing the power that Mother Nature has over us. When I woke up this morning and turned on the news I was shocked to see the picture and videos of the destruction that has gripped Japan. It was truly amazing how catastrophic it was and unfortunately the death toll is going to rise as search and rescue crews comb through the wreckage of the cities.

This is one of those disasters that can't be really blamed on mankind. The Earth shows us all to often it  is a living organism and not just a rock. My heart cries for the people of Japan and really goes out to them, I wish I could go there and do something to help but I do not have the skills that they need. If you have friends or family in Japan here is some information to help connect with them...

The best way to contact or locate U.S. citizens living or traveling in Japan is to contact the U.S. Department of State, Office of Overseas Citizens Services, at 1-888-407-4747 or (202) 647-5225. The International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) has offered to assist Japan with restoring family links.

If you are looking to give a monetary donations as usual I recommend the US Red Cross. Those who want to help can go to www.redcross.org and donate to Japan Earthquake and Pacific Tsunami. People can also text REDCROSS to 90999 to make a $10 donation to help those affected by the earthquake in Japan and tsunami throughout the Pacific.
