Pray for Japan: Must See Photos

Pray for Japan: Must See Photos

Fri 11 Mar 2011 04:38

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.

Larry Doyle
