Overcoming the Crises in Japan – Keep Strong

The world’s eyes are on Japan right now.  Many are holding their breath waiting to see how bad the crisis and damage will be.  The earthquake and tsunami were quick.  Millions of lives were changed in an instant.  Thousands died and those who survived will never be the same.  There are no quick or easy fixes for those who have lost loved ones and their homes. Right now, as I write this, people are struggling to survive.

We are still waiting to see what will happen at a damaged nuclear power plant.  Nobody knows for sure what is going to happen or what the long term impact will be.  For good reasons people have significant health concerns and are afraid. It is going to take a long time to pick up the pieces of this tragedy.

Times like these remind us how fragile and valuable our lives are.  Many people are scared.  Some may feel helpless and powerless, but do not become hopeless.  Focus on what needs to be done today in order to minimize damage and danger.  Recovery will not be easy but stay focused and begin the slow process of recovery and healing one step at a time.

If you have read “Unclipped Wings”,  you know that I do understand that it is not easy to pick up the pieces when “life takes us to where we don’t belong”.  But sometimes life doesn’t give us much choice.  Nobody said life was fair or easy.  It may be scary, but resist the urge to give up.  We can never be sure what will happen – or what will rise up out of the ashes.

For me it was “Unclipped Wings”.  My heart goes out to the survivors and everyone touched by this tragedy.  May you receive what you need – when you need it, so you can recover and heal.   May you overcome and find yourselves soaring on “Unclipped Wings”.

My thanks also goes out to all the “unnamed heroes” who have, are, and will step up to the plate.  I may not know your name, but I value what you do to make our world a better place.
