I woke up Friday morning hearing about a tsunami heading towards the United States, without any context of what was actually happening in Japan itself. First thing I read, actually, was Reader Wil’s post. Then I watched a lot of the television coverage. And I STILL don’t know what to say, yet. Maybe OMG. I do like Jaquandor’s post, though.
