I'm sure everyone is fully aware of the crisis in Japan by this time.
I've always referred to Japan as my second home, but when it comes down to it I hold Japan just as close to my heart as America, if not closer in many ways.
For all of the challenges I was presented with when living there, I learned to adapt, grow, and think from different perspectives.
For all of the dear friends I met in Japan, and all that they taught me with patience, kindness, and love.
And how they put up with me when I couldn't keep up, got lost in translation, and just needed help all around...
The Japanese aren't big on begging, so I will take it upon myself as an American to beg on their behalf right now.
Please Help Japan:
