Local Japan

This winter the youngest studied Japan for social studies and loved it madly. I know this because for two weeks, he peppered me nonstop with Japan trivia tidbits he gleaned from school and from umpteen library books he took out.

Unfortunately he feels the disaster much more keenly as a result. He asks me every day what's happened while he was at school, and I struggle with how to explain the current situation in a factually true way that will satisfy his need for information but not overburden him. Today and tomorrow look grim, very grim, and so I think the event below may be just what we need, a celebration of Japan's best resource: her people.
