If You Send Nothing Else, Send Love

The destruction and impact of the earthquake, tsunami, and nuclear meltdowns in Japan are unfathomable at this point. I've found it hard to take it in, let alone express it (though I tried and will keep trying). 

On Thursday is a chance to gather with others in the Little Tokyo/Downtown LA community to "come together, and reflect on the suffering of countless individuals and our interconnectedness" (Chris Aihara, Executive Director of the Japanese American Cultural & Community Center).

"In response to the tragedies in Japan, the JACCC is convening an interfaith service and community gathering.

       Service & Community Gathering for Japan Quake Victims
       Thursday, March 17, 6:30
       JACCC Plaza
       244 S. San Pedro St.
       Los Angeles, CA 90012

       For more information, contact: JACCC 213-628-2725

There will be representatives from Japan disaster relief funds, for individuals who wish to make a contribution."

See JACCC's press release here.

I'll be there.
