RIP and may we never be hit like this ever again.

RIP to all the victims and my heartfelt condolences to those surviving them. I feel the same as Elbuda, and though we most certainly WILL get hit again at some point (Japan), here's hoping by then we have the technology and the means to avoid similar carnage and death. I hope these people all find peace.

2 years ago, I though I would die at the 34th floor of my building then spent the evening with my friends, not understanding everything that happened. Will never forget that day and the following ones... My condolences to people who lost a loved one on that day. Lots of LOVE.

Although my friends and loved ones suffered only minor damage to their homes, this still terrified me watching it from the other side of the planet... feeling defencesless. I can't imagine how people who experienced it were affected - that goes for the JT members who lived through it.

In defiance of logic, I really hope nothing like this ever happens again.

RIP to the people that lost their lives, and to those who lost loved ones and friends, my heart goes out to you.

On 3.11.2011 the day of the 9.0 Mag Earthquake and Tsunami, many people pass away and some are still not found. Many babies were born on this day. My heart goes out to the ones born on that day up in Northern Japan. A total of 104 babies were born in Iwate, Fukushima, and Miyagi prefectures on that day. Each of these babies got an oak chair with engraved name of the child and a message wishing the...m strength in the future. They will always remember what happened from everyone in Japan on their birthday. Remember there is always hope for life. Lets have a moment of silence at 2:45 p.m. for Japan.

Happy 2nd Birthday to my son Lavon Asahi Williams born on 3.11.2011. You were born on this day in Japan but, it was the happiest day of my life. Mommy is sad your not a baby anymore but I'm looking forward of your future. Love you very much.
