Japan's Devastating Earthquake.

As I sit here feeling the tremors of the aftermath from the earthquake that struck Japan this afternoon, replying to all the messages from loved ones telling them I am safe, I can't help but think about those effected by the devastating tsunami that has swept the nation. Judging only by what I've seen on the news and television, I am so incredibly shocked that this is the largest earthquake to ever strike Japan. I am so lucky to be living on the other side of Japan, where neither the tsunami nor the earthquake has any great effect.

My heart goes out to those effected and their families.
