Japan: An Update

leave a comment »

According to Yahoo! News yesterday, the death toll in Japan is at 10,000 and rising. This is clearly turning into a major global incident. Although I do not necessarily agree with President Obama on every issue, I do agree that it is in our best humanitarian interest to support Japan in any way that we can. However, I do not believe that simply sending an aircraft carrier to Japan and expecting everything to turn out okay is the best option.

Normally I would suggest that we keep to ourselves and focus on our own problems before trying to solve the problems of others. This catastrophe calls for action. Please, call around and ask what you can do to help. Be careful, though: there are always scam artists who try to take advantage kind-hearted people in times of need.

Also, please keep the people of Japan in your thoughts and prayers.

As always, I look forward to reading your comments and suggestions.
