I am amazed by many of the news picture coverage of the earthquake and tsunami in Japan the past couple of days. I lived in Japan for 1 1/2 yrs many years ago, and experienced a few earthquakes there but this is entirely different. My heart goes out to the victims of this disaster. We can all be so vulnerable at times and unaware. It brings to mind how we too in the Pacific NW are living close to the same type of fault lines and scenes like these could be happening on our coast someday. Share on Facebook
