    The images coming out of Japan look absolutely devastating. Stay safe, everyone!

    Signal boosting, people are trying to spread the #j_j_helpme hashtag on Twitter for people in Japan who are in emergency situations.

      My aunt is there, she moved there a year or so ago, sure do wish she hadn't moved now! Emailed my other Aunt to ask her to email when she finds anything out.

    These poor people, its enough to make a person cry sad
    Lets hope that in the days and months ahead the world will rally behind Japan and help get the people there back on their feet.

    We watched the breaking news in disbelief. Feel really sad for the people there. Hope no other places will be affected by tsunamis.

    I'm giving this a bump..
    so much tragedy and danger, and they remain relatively calm, it's quite remarkable.  Hopefully, the nuclear threats of danger can be contained and the people will have food and shelter.
