続:NPOへの大震災のお見舞いと激励メッセージ

16.
I am writing fearful of what has happened to you and my other friends from Sendai and associated with Tohoku University.  Please assure me that you are safe and that your colleagues and loved ones are safe from the terrible destruction.
Our prayers go to those who died and our hearts go to all who survived but are suffering and to those who are safe now but at risk. Please tell me what international organizations are providing the most help so I can encourage my friends to contribute money to them.
You spoke of the beauties of the Sendai region.  I am sorry I was unable to see it before the destruction, but I have faith that the Japanese people will reconstruct and prosper, as they did so magnificently after World War II.  I am amazed at the courage and dignity the country is showing in such extreme adversity.
In sympathy and with best wishes,

It seems longer than 8 days for those of us watching from the outside world, these past days must seem like being in a non-stop nightmare for you, your family and friends.
Certainly, for those of us living in individualist and self-focussed societies, the overall image of how the Japanese people have responded to this crisis, is a good lesson in world studies. What I mean is the extraordinary co-operation and connection between people and their friends, family and neighbours we hear about. I know there are counter examples, but on the whole I can't imagine the British, American or even Canadian people being so generally cooperative with each other in such overwhelming circumstances.

We are all so sad for the Japanese people.  But some of the stories of sharing and caring in the worst-hit areas, down on the streets, or what is left of them, are so uplifting.  I feel very privileged to have visited your lovely country and continue to wish you and yours all the best.

I hope that many of you in Japan are doing well and that the immediate tension and stress of the earthquake are beginning to subside.  My thoughts are with you.
I am very impressed to hear that so many of you continue to be determined amidst the damage and the impossibility to continue to work as before the quake.

A return to normalcy is a step by step process on a day by day basis.  I wish for you strength and courage.

I have organised a music event to be held on April 9th in Islington in Devon in support of Tsunami Relief in Japan. Musicians are coming together to play on that evening to facilitate discussion about ways in which we can offer support. So far we have about 12 musicians coming to play. Of course there will be a collection so that a donation can be made - but the main thing will be to raise awareness about the situation that you are facing.

This attitude amazed everyone who has been watching the horrendous
calamity on the TV 10 things to learn from japan- (actually there are many more things, but just now its just 10)

1. THE CALM
  Not a single visual of chest-beating or wild grief. Sorrow itself has
been elevated.
2. THE DIGNITY

Disciplined queues for water and groceries. Not a rough word or a crude
gesture.
3. THE ABILITY
  The incredible architects, for instance. Buildings swayed but didnâ  t fall.
4. THE GRACE
  People bought only what they needed for the present, so everybody could
get something.
5. THE ORDER

No looting in shops. No honking and no overtaking on the roads. Just
understanding.
6. THE SACRIFICE
  Fifty workers stayed back to pump sea water in the N-reactors. How will
they ever be repaid?
7. THE TENDERNESS
  Restaurants cut prices. An unguarded ATM is left alone. The strong cared for the weak.
8. THE TRAINING
  The old and the children, everyone knew exactly what to do. And they did
just that.
9. THE MEDIA

They showed magnificent restraint in the bulletins. No silly reporters.
Only calm reportage.

10. THE CONSCIENCE
When the power went off in a store, people put things back on the shelves and left quietly -
