Extremely sad! On March 11, a terrible magnitude 9 earthquake, followed by a devastating 10-m high tsunami, mercilessly destroyed most of North-Eastern coast of Japan. Over ten thousand were killed. Many more have lost their families, homes, and all they have. Those in relief camps are facing shortage of electricity, food, water, and shivering in sub-zero temperatures; some of the victims actually died in the camps! The deadly nuclear disaster in the Fukushima 1 Nuclear Power Plant continues to unfold. Radioactive contaminants were detected in vegetables, milk, other foods, and even in the tap water of Tokyo. The catastrophes are still going on, countless Japanese are still suffering. Japan, our hearts are with you, we support you!
