  6. I like what Annie said. It is so heartwarming to see how some of us in this world will come together to help each other in times of need. Love the shamrock, Gemma. Also Irish in my blood and today is my youngest daughter's birthday too!

  7. The horror and tragedy over there is heartbreaking. I lost everything in a fire last month, but I unlike most of those poor people I had a place to go live, a job, and my life resumed pretty much as it was. I cannot imagine what the future holds for Japan. Bless you for doing what you can. Perle Champion

  13. Thank you President Obama,
    "All of us are heartbroken by the images of what's happening in Japan and we're reminded of how American leadership is critical to our closest allies," Obama said in Washington.

    "Even if those allies are themselves economically advanced and powerful, there are moments where they need our help, and we're bound together by a common humanity."

  16. May the blessing of light be on you—
    light without and light within.
    May the blessed sunlight shine on you
    and warm your heart
    till it glows like a great peat fire.

    this is a wonderful Idea and charitable donation that you are doing. Thank you, I forwarded the link to a friend in Japan, to show him not "all" westerners are ~!@#$.
    Blessed Be.
