Safe for now in Yokohama
Just wanted to let all Lashtalians know that me, my family, and our extended network of family and friends in Japan are all OK for the moment. Shaken, worried, and considering various escape plans if the worse comes to the worse, but bearing up and trying to stay calm and positive. We consider ourselves extremely lucky in comparison to many millions of others in Japan right now.
All the best,
Gregg in Yokohama
Good to know everything for you, your family and friends is OK for the moment, hope also everything will be OK in the future, best wishes for you, your family and friends!
It's good to know you are OK.
Sending love and light to everyone there.
I send my very best to the Japanese people at this period of great need. My thoughts are with you...
Glad to know you are doing alright comparatively. I hope it stays that way and I hope all those not so fortunate can find some comfort and of course survival...
Glad to know you are okay.
I am very happy to learn that you are safe, Gary, the thought did cross my mind.
I can't really take in what is happening since mid- January. The scale and pace of it all is simply unfathomable. So many deaths, so much grief, just so so much of everything. It can't be grasped. I'm numb.
I watched the tsunami break land, live on the web (a helicopter from a news crew covered it live) literally as it was happening, washing away lives and whole towns.
I told a friend this, he said "you must have felt like God, watching a tsunami from above". Of course I said, I've never felt less God-like in my life. This is a tragedy beyond anyone's wildest nightmares, and it's becoming worse by the hour.
My very best wishes, prayers, thoughts and love to all those afflicted by what is happening. I wish I could do more than just write this. God? hah.
They're evacuating Tokyo, a city of 13 million people.
