We love Japan

The earthquake and tsunami that struck Japan on the afternoon of Friday, March 11th also sent a shockwave of grief and horror around the world.

Many have found that they want and need to express their support and solidarity with the people of Japan but aren’t sure how. We’ve set up this page so that people can express their support for those affected by this earthquake and will promote it so that as many Japanese people as possible have a chance to see these messages.

As well as sharing your messages, we encourage you to donate to the Save the Children Japan Fund and other related charities in their efforts to provide relief to the victims of this disaster.

When you comment, please let us know where you are from.


3月11日午後に日本を襲った地震と津波は、世界中に恐れと悲しみの波をもたらしました。多くの人々が、日本に住む人々に対する思いやりとサポートを表現したいと願いながら、どのようにすべきかわからずにいます。私共はこのページを、海外に住む先生方や生徒さんが、地震の被害に遭われた方々に対するサポート・メッセージを投稿いただけるよう、提供したいと思います。

また、こういったメッセージを投稿くださる方々が、被害に遭われた方々の救済に奔走する赤十字をはじめとする慈善団体への寄付を行ってくださるよう、お願いしたいと思います。

Hello people of Japan, I'm Philippe from Rio de Janeiro and I wanted to say that I pray for you every day, and I sincerely hope that the nuclear reactors get finally cooled by the heroes that day after day risk their lives bringing water to these reactors.

May God bless you in this difficult time

From Rio de Janeiro

We sure have to respect the frustration you might be feeling, but please, do not let that be stronger than the hope everybody needs to hold on to. God is with us all.

From Brazil

I am really concern and sad about what happened in Japan. My heartfelt condolences for the family members who lost their near and dear ones.

My heart goes with you in my prayers and I hope that time will cure and give you strength to carry on with your daily routine. Be strong and rise up again as you rose from the World War 2. Good luck and peace to Japan.

Every time an aftershock occurs (and there have been many these past days), my heart aches with compassion for the people in Tohoku, who have to bear this trauma all over again. Constantly thinking about everyone who has been affected by this disaster and praying for their recovery. がんばれ日本!

From Tokyo

Dear teachers and students in Japan,

I am normally in Japan, teaching and working with English learners young and old. But, for right now I am in California. Me and many other people are sending our prayers, positive thoughts and donations to help support you as you deal with so much loss and difficulties. We love you very much!!!

Everyone in the US says how wonderful the Japanese people are: They are helping each other and very calm during such an enormous crisis. "This would never happen in the US," they say. "It would be chaos." I have lived in Japan for 20 years and love the Japanese culture. I am proud that you are showing your true colors - what a beautiful people you are! Continue to show the world just how good you are. I am looking forward to returning to Japan soon!

Love,

Renee
