Pray for Japan: Must See Photos
Posted by Larry Doyle on March 11, 2011 7:31 PM |
I do not know if there are words to properly describe the level of devastation embodied in these photos from Japan taken earlier today. I know that I do not possess the ability to appropriately describe what the Japanese people must be experiencing.
In the spirit of grace and kindness, I send my prayers and I would ask everybody to do the same. Pray for Japan and all those impacted by this natural disaster.
I thank the regular reader who shared these photos from the site, Boing Boing.
I hope anybody who views these will share them with friends, family, and colleagues so their prayers and assistance can be directed to Japan as well.
