Thinking About Japan

Hi, this is Kirsten.

We debated about whether to blog about the earthquake in Japan, not because we didn't think it was important... quite the contrary. More like because it was so huge and so tragic, we didn't quite know what to say that wouldn't be trite, especially since we weren't personally affected.

In the end, though, we decided that we didn't want to let it pass without mention, and without publicly voicing our support and well-wishes for those who were affected. We're all citizens of the same world, and tonight we're thinking of those who were killed, those who are missing or whose loved ones are missing, those who are displaced, and the rescuers trying to help them.

  1. Salut, girls!
    I've been actively reading your blog, but I can't believe I haven't commented! I will change that.
    Anyway, thank you for this post. I'm really wishing for the best...this is terrible. Although I do not get along with Jess (I do get along with her twin), I still hope their family is fine. Their mother's siblings are currently living there, and I hope they are okay...

  2. Thanks for commenting, Sabine. To be fair, I don't think we've ever commented on your blog either, though we enjoy reading it.

    We hope Jess's family is alright, too!

    The news coming in from Japan just seems worse and worse. What a tragedy.
