It's always important to remember that no matter what curve balls life is throwing at you there is going to be someone - somewhere - who is going through something harder...something you can't even begin to imagine.
I saw this on facebook today and had to share it here:
I was sorry to hear that I'd missed a the Bloggers Day of Silence on March 18th and am a little behind.
If you want to help there are many organizations taking donations and offering support to Japan:
The American Red Cross
Save the Children
Look into efforts in your town. Donating money is only one way. In Portland the Japanese Garden has a Memorial Wish Arbor for Earthquake and Tsunami Victims.
"To serve the community, the Portland Japanese Garden has erected a “Wish Arbor” for people to visit, pray and reflect. Visitors are encouraged to write wishes and condolences for victims of the disasters and tie them to the memorial."
