Blogging from A to Z: J is for Japan
I don't want to go on too long, mostly because I'm still pretty sick and trying to get some rest, but I wanted to take a little bit of time out to applaud the efforts of all the people who are giving what they can to support the relief effort here. You are making a huge difference. The people here need as much as they can get; my wife was telling me something she heard on the news: despite the fact that hundreds of millions has been donated, after that has been divided up between all the people who have lost their homes and loved ones in the quake, the tsunami, and the aftermath, every person will only get about $3000 dollars of it. That is to make up for the jobs, homes, and family that they lost. They are going to have to make do on what amounts to only a single month's paycheck in whatever effort they try to make at rebuilding. They really, really need all the help that they can get.
Thanks people! Keep up the good work. Japan sends its thanks!!
