I overheard someone talking today and they said some stuff indicating that they weren't going to donate anything to the response in Japan because Japan is a wealthy nation that can look after their own. As you might imagine this was more than a little upsetting. While it is true that Japan is better equipped to deal with something like this than say, Haiti, this is still a massive disaster and many people are suffering and could use our help. You don't have to donate much to help make a difference - how much do you spend on espresso or lunch on a given day?
My best wishes to the people in Japan right now.
