When news broke of the earthquake (and subsequent tsunami) that hit Japan I was frightened. I spent the entirety of 2010 in Japan teaching three year olds and my thoughts instantly went to my little babies, their families and the staff of my school.
They aren't in the direct hit area but I want to send my love. One mum told me "It was soooooo horrible. We are okey". This makes me feel better for them but my love goes out to the country that made me feel so welcomed. It is truly frightening to see people go through this kind of horror. My love to them all.
