Japanese Earthquake in the Land of Bonsai

It is with great sadness that we witnessed the destruction of many square miles of this fine country.
My heart goes out to those people who have struggled so valiantly to build their wonderful culture, which was partly destroyed today.

Considered by many to be the major heart of bonsai ideals, Japan has never had an easy go of it, and today was no exception.
The 8.9 magnitude earthquake which shook the island nation was the strongest recorded in the past 300 years.

May the Japanese people find some rest.

For me, watching this suffering I concluded that my own personal issues are nothing compared to losing everything in 10 seconds, including family members. One's life can never be the same.
