Let's Move into action for Japan
Japan is now in full recovery mode, trying to rebuild the nation while resolving the radiation issue at the same time. This may be the time for us to ask ourselves if we have done anything about Japan. Let's do something - anything - to help Japan recover and rebuild. We can pray, donate, assist, communicate, share, deploy, give, help, or whatever. Instead of watching CNN, maybe we can pickup a phone and call someone that you know in Japan. Instead of reading more stories about "what happened," maybe we can spend more time thinking about "what we can do about the future of Japan."
More than 21,000 people are now confirmed dead or missing. I still have a relative and close friends in Japan. But thinking and doing are not the same thing - it's time for each one of us to take action to rebuild Japan. It will take months, maybe years, for them to get back to normal and they are going to need our support for years to come.
It's time to take action. It's time to embrace the future. It's time to recommit and rebuild.
