Though my family is of Taiwanese descent, I still feel a deep connection to a deep sorrow for all that has happened in the past month in Japan. It’s not just the fact that my grandparents and cousins speak Japanese or that I (up to one month ago) had family members in Japan; it’s a deep, inward hurt. One of knowing that there is nothing to stop these earthquakes and tsunamis. One of knowing that there is much pain and much sorrow. One of feeling unable to really help, here in America, thousands of miles away. But with all my heart, 我為你們禱告.
