  • Japan sits on the most active volcanic and earthquake zone in the world. Go figure they had another one.

  • Thank you for letting me know, I must ring my friend and berate her for staying in her job there. She's worrying me far too much.

  • We were supposed to be there right now. Luckily, the other one happened in time to cancel the trip! So sad and scary. They just can't get a break.

  • My heart breaks for the families who are still suffering from the last disaster. We sent money to the Red Cross to help the survivors of the last quake and tsunami. I hope they have enough warning this time to get everyone to safety--and that this doesn't cause more damage to the nuclear reactors. My thoughts are with them.  We have a boy in my older daughter's school whose mother is from Japan--and she still has family and friends there.  She has asked the school to help raise funds, and the school came through for her.  It looks like we'll have to see what more we can do. . .

  • Well, sure, it makes sense they had another one. Just like it makes sense for the southeast and Gulf coasts of the US to have hurricanes. We have CM members living there, though... thought people would like to know. Hope everyone is safe!
