Japan will have beautiful Japanese Plum or Ume flower blossoms someday very soon
I generally protect myself from live video and news reports. I have never watched the fall of the 911 twin towers; I did not watch television coverage of Hurricane Katrina -New Orleans or the Haiti earthquake; and I kept my visual distance from the BP oil spill. I don’t need the media to “do color” for these events; I can imagine the worst all by myself.
The Japan coverage has been live and moment-by-moment. We can see the devastation as it happens, and I have found myself drawn in and starting to drown and shake right along with the Japanese people. The devastation and the coverage have been beyond the beyond. How much news coverage can we absorb without doing something? But the only option available to most of us right now is to share the devastating videos and news coverage. My first response was to share on Facebook the video I had just been viewing of the Japan Tsunami devastation.
First I shared, and then I deleted—I do not want to hold a picture of a devastated Japan in my mind, nor do I want to share that image. The images I want to share are of a strong Japan, a proud country with people who will overcome and rebuild.
I do not want to attract despair; I want to attract hope, encouragement, support, and strength. The worst will continue to unfold….the best needs our help right now.
The Japanees will re-build their homes and their trees will grow strong and healthy from the clean air surrounding them.
The children of Japan are loved and their families are safe. Despite devastation—their will is very strong.
Please feel free to share your renewing love,and hope in the comment section of Odd and help us all continue to stay focused on the best to come for a country that needs our energy and strength.
