Hold in our hearts: Japan Earthquake & Tsunami Victims

Please Pray for Japan Earthquake and Tsunami Victims. A massive 8.9 earthquake hit Japan a few hours ago, followed by huge aftershocks and a couple tsunamis. There are tsunami warnings all around the Pacific Rim, Hawaii, the Philippines, etc.

My pleasure, Lizzie. I found that link when a friend asked me if I'd heard about a bad quake, and I added it to my favorites just to be able to check in on Mother Earth and what she's up to. Fascinating.

I just noticed how early in the morning those times are. A lot of people will still be in bed and others won't have heard the news yet. Scary.

Have been following this for a few hours. It's terrible. It's complete devastation in some areas.

We'll be praying. I hope they don't take this thread down. I'll pray about that too.

8:35 am it will be at Rincon beach near me. I'm safe and inland but concerned for our beach people. They live right on the shore.
