Our thoughts, prayers and good graces go out to those in Japan whose lives were affected by the massive earthquake and tsunami. We encourage you to give to the Red Cross Japan relief effort. The people of the land of the rising Sun are resilient, resourceful and incredibly good-natured, honorable and kind. Japan will overcome the devastation caused by the natural disaster and will be even more prepared and fortified as a result of it. Until that time, we have a lot of work to do to rebuild the parts of Nippon that were affected by the disaster.
