The images blow your mind and I think back to being in India during the tsunami there more than five years ago. As you go through your day please keep in mind the people all over the world affected by this event and pause for a moment to pray for them.
Here in Southern California tensions were on edge for the morning hours, but waves at the beaches are normal here. Still the beaches remain closed and for good reason. The 8.9 earthquake was one of the largest earthquakes ever recorded. Even as I write this an after shock of 6.6 has just hit Nagano, Japan so this is still a developing story. Please pray for all those in Japan.
