As you all might already know, a 8.9 magnitude earthquake struck off the coast of Japan late Thursday night (PST). The death toll is (as of right now) 24, with many many more injured. Tidal wave warnings have been issued and the damage is enormous.
I would just like to ask you to keep them in your thoughts, or prayers if your beliefs call for that as well. Just remember these are our brothers whose lives have been devastated through no fault of their own.
There have also been heightened tsunami alerts around the pacific, so keep an eye out for those in hawai'i and australia and the philipines and the like. My heart goes out to all afflicted.
