Disaster and Tragedy in Japan

As many of you know, CNN Student News has viewers around the world.  Many have sent us emails or left questions on Facebook asking what they can do to help the people of Japan.  A good place to start is CNN's Impact Your World.  Go to http://www.cnn.com/impact and check it out. 

Another thing you can do is to leave some words of encouragement for your fellow students in Japan.  You're welcome to use this space to share your thoughts.

    Japan will be able to rebuild it self but Haiti might never be revived.

    I think we can all pitch in, we can all make a differnce even with doating just a dollar or if you have to going through garbage cans anything you have to do to give back. I know if America was in this situation i sure do hope other countries would help us too.

    This quake/tsunami sounds horrible. I heard it shifted 8 centimeters! The people in Japan are very brave. They should know that they are all in our prayers.

    I think that we should give the students laptops and a webcam so japaniess american teachers can teach over the webcam

    March 15, 2011 at 5:37 pm |
  7. Gracie

    This is a bad time in history for Japan. What I think we could all do to help out Japan is donate money to the red cross and just pray that all the missing are found and all the dead are in a better place.

    Well, i'm living in Korea, a neighboring country with Japan, and it's sad to hear new victims, accidents, and so much of them updated every hours. It was a really massive sobotage.

    March 15, 2011 at 6:24 pm |
  9. Nora

    I think the whole world should help the Japanese survive and rebuild. They need our help in this dark time.

    I pray for the people who have lost their homes and who have died in this Natural Disaster. It is sad to know Japan gets a 9.0 earthquake, tsunami, and nuclear power plant problems. Rest in peace to the people who have died. God bless.

    What happen in Japan is a history event that will be remembered for a very long period of time. God Bless to those who lost their lives March 10th 2011.

    I think the earthquake and tsunami was a disaster that was tragic but with the most respect is bringing our countries together.

    I am very sad that something like this has to happen, and connot believe the destruction that it brought. The devastation is just so mind blowing, my prayers go to those affected by this disaster.

    March 15, 2011 at 7:39 pm |
  19. Alex

    All I can say is that this is the worst natural disaster I've ever seen. I'm glad that so many countries are taking part in this. I heard about the Haiti Earthquake and Hurricane Katrina, and in my opinion this disaster is worst than those two combined.

    March 15, 2011 at 7:43 pm |
  20. Karla

    I think that all this is really sad! After that all happened another came the next day or so ! I feel really sorry for them in Japen!!!!!!

  23. Andrew

    I think everybody should help the people in Japan. See we all have our major earthquakes and what happend last year... thats right Hati's earthquake.

    March 15, 2011 at 8:28 pm |
  24. Jacob

    I think the disaster in Japan is very unfortuant. I'll be keepin them in my prayers for sure.

  25. Salina

    Japan is in a time of devestation, families and friends are still in danger. Even though times are hard, people need to pray and "smile for Japan". Make sure they know the world will help them through everything. Together we are one.

    March 15, 2011 at 8:51 pm |
  26. lulu

    i just feel so bad for japan and would do anythingto help. the people should just hang on and things will soon get better for them.

    March 15, 2011 at 9:05 pm |
  27. jordan

    I think what has happened is absolutely horrible. But i hope that we can learn from this. Like the nuclear plants i hope they will now have better safety.

    March 15, 2011 at 9:06 pm |
  28. Anubia

    I think there should be fundraisers and events to help raise money for supplies to be sent out to the disaster areas. I'm sure people probably need food, clothing, and medications to start getting back on their feet.

    March 15, 2011 at 9:11 pm |
  29. Hunter

    I think Japan should send out more requests for help because they're in a crisis and should get alot more help because for all we know or the government knows this could take 5-15 years or more so everyone needs to contribute.

    March 15, 2011 at 9:48 pm |
  30. Will

    I am praying for the families in Japan who have lost a loved one. It is so very sad that they would be hit with all of this. Our social studies and current events class has been talking about this conatantly. It is a very important issue. It is horrible that all of this would happen, especially in such a small time frame. I hope that all countries help Japan if they are able.

    March 15, 2011 at 9:50 pm |
  31. Hunter

    I agree with Jordan, Japan will learn from this and possibly they might have time to evacuate that area.

    March 15, 2011 at 9:51 pm |
  32. Lucia

    What has happen is a great tradegy that will remain a part of our thoughts for years to come. What we must do now, at this very moment, is stand up and help them in their time in need because chances are that they would do the same for us if it ever happened, hopefully not. Bless everyone in Japan and my heart goes out to all the the families and individuals that went through this catastrophe.

    XOXO

    March 15, 2011 at 9:53 pm |
  33. Andrew

    I will keep praying for those people to maker sure they get food and shelter. I wish the people in Japan soon get back to normal.

  34. Tomomi

    I'd like to say at first, I really appreciate your warm thoughts. I have several friends who live in the Kanto region and the Tohoku district. I didn't manage to contact them, however, a few days later they managed to send me their text messages which said "we were fine!"

    Now, we're in the dark wood, but I firmly believe we're rebuilding our country what it was.

  35. Brandy

    Love goes out to those in Japan. This just goes to show the reality of natural disasters. Many people seem to think they're just out there, but never seem to realize the actual impact they have. Thank God Japan was as prepared as they were, who knows what could have happened if they weren't.

    March 15, 2011 at 10:45 pm |

    ithink it was terrible and i hope it wont happen again in any part of the world.

  37. Allie

    What happened in Japan was and is horrible, we all live on planet earth, so we may not be super heroes, but we need to start acting like it. Japan is in need so it is time to come together and actually do something about it, not just wish to.

    March 15, 2011 at 11:12 pm |

    I'm reading these messages in Japan. Really heartfelt! Thank you,everybody in the world. I feel you.

  39. Elizabeth

    The people in Japan are going through a horrible time, but we can still see that despite all the chaos, there are people who struggle to live and have hope that things will work out. There is hope in every living witness of this disaster. This will all work out in one way or another.

    I live near Tokyo and there still are aftershocks every once in a while. There just was one as I was typing. I really appreciate your prayers and concerns. You all are great encouragement to us.

    I know that Japan was the most disaster ready country ever. But no one had ever expected this to happen. I just want to say to all the people that lost loved ones and their houses that I hope I can some how help you and I hope you can all rebuild your lives as quikly as possible.

    March 16, 2011 at 1:12 am |
  43. Ilean

    I feel really sorry for them, and I hate how the majority of people are focusing on the economic problems this will have on the world. They should be worrying more about the millions of people who are affected personally by this. Greed is a powerful tool; I know that nations aren't helping Japan simply for economic reasons, but you can't deny that its a big reason why most nations are helping.

    March 16, 2011 at 1:17 am |
  44. Vincent

    Let's take a moment of silence, and give our condolences to everyone who has perished, been missing, or having a really hard time so far in this disastrous event. These people I've been seeing in the news since the weekends are hurting my feelings, and I will try, along with the support of my school, to raise $1000 to help with the Japanese Relief. I encourage everyone throughout the United States to help the Federal Government to aid the nation of Japan.

    March 16, 2011 at 1:30 am |
  45. Zaira

    The Crises going on in Japan is bug but i think people should help
    o provide food,water,clothes,and shelter.
    Schools do some sort of activities to help the people in Japan.
    I know the people are struggling with the economic problems but i still think we should all pich in and help in some sort of way. 😀

    I'm Japanese student in Tokyo. The disaster in Tokyo wasn't terrible but people got panic. They buy up all food and supplies at supermarkets and I couldn't buy anything there. I wrote the article on my blog in English about our situation in Tokyo.

  47. Emmylou

    I am a Japanese university student in Tokyo. Here we have been experiencing so many aftershocks and the capital is still paralyzed, but things are getting slightly better. People in Tokyo are limiting their use and sending electricity, water, gas and other stuff to the most suffered areas in the Northern Japan, but what we can do within the country is very limited. So far we have received so many aids, personnels, donations from overseas and we really appreciate them, but thousands of people are still missing, incl. 500 foreigners, people up north don't have enough gas to heat themselves up, food to feed themselves, clothes to protect themselves from the severe snowy weather. If you could spare us a little more help and concern, we'd appreciate them more than anything else. Thank you.

    And I also want to let you guys know I actually was saved by US Air Force. Your military is doing a wonderful job here with great hospitality.

    I'm from South Korea and everyone in the nation is worries about Japan even when we had bad conflict with Japan in the history. Those who likes Japan's loss gets criticized heavily by many people

    Your coverage on the disaster in Japan has been exceptional.
    Thanks for informing viewers on the pertinent points and excellent background knowledge on tsunamis and nuclear power plants.

    March 16, 2011 at 6:14 am |
  52. Rei

    thank you for your help for Japan, Carl.

    i'm one of the japanese university student.
    i experienced the biggest crisis, and still, my friend's family has been unfinded.

    we, all Japanese people, inclding the prople who was hit their city from tsunami, need many help, aid, and support to live their live and to find their pearents or family or lovers.

    fortunately, a lot of countries around the world offer their help for Japan. it is really thankful.

    of course, i really appreciate all of the coments around here. i'm so impressed. they are really encourage us to live.

    i'll read all of these coments.

  53. Ben

    It's always a global issue, if to a much smaller degree, when natural disasters happen. But the hope for this one; the world watching, sending aid, rescuers finding children alive... It's a really amazing turnout of kindness, if you will. And there's no doubt they'll be able to recover, but it's going to take some time. The areas around the nuclear plant will probably need to be abandoned. The thing is, the whole world is feeling the pain, the suffering, the economic crash, and therefore it's like everyone just had an earthquake or tsunami. We just need to keep their heads high, and not let then underestimate their country.

    March 16, 2011 at 6:54 am |
  54. Bryan

    I think it is horrible they first had the earthquake then the tsunami. Plus all the after shocks it was devestating to citys and town. some comletley flattened. And then all the people who cant find family is devestating.

    I NOW ITS A DRAG IN JAPAN RIGHT NOW,BUT JUST DON'T GIVE IN. TRY TO IGNORE WHAT HAPPEN EVEN HOW HARD IT IS.

  56. MInje

    I'm Korean, but I'm living in Japan right now, but our family's thinking of going back to Korea. I live in Kobe, which wasn't really affected, but we still felt the earthquake in school last Friday. Right now, families from our school are going back to their own countries, (I go to an international school). Right now, people that live in Japan are literally buying everything they could get hold of from the market for emergency. I live on an artificial island, so there's a high chance of Tsunami, but if you stay away from the shore, there probably won't beany damage. (I hope)

  57. Yutaro

    People in Tohoku which is damaged area by the earthwuake have tried to live in cold night without fire, lights, food and water. Im really really feel thankful for all over the world to help Japan. We never give up.

    Its very sad that something like this happened, the destruction was so devastating is just so mind blowing, my prayers go to those who lost their love one.I pray no part of the world will have to through this kind of destruction again.I think the international communite"s responds are just too good.Japaness shuold take heart.

  59. Lois

    I really feel terrible for the people in Japan right now. They lost every they owned. Their job, money, family, friends, food, shelter and many more. I bet the in surance company will have a big problem after this disaster is over. Moreover, i don't feel safe either. 'cause currently I'm living in Korea, which is very near to Japan. Well, I'll going to make a 'Donate Jar' and in there whenever i waste energy, foodwater or many other things, i will put 10 cents. And when the jar is full, i will post it to Japan. Good Luck Japan!! Don't forget that many people are trying to help ya!!!!

  61. Collin

    World disasters are striking everywhere. I do believe that Japan will need much aid from other countries in order to recover from the quake and tsunami. This is a disaster that will go down in history. Thousands of families have been affected, and the worst part... There are survivors still stuck that need help.

    March 16, 2011 at 8:15 am |
  62. Misaki

    I am so thanksful for the U.S support and help.
    I cannot feel ease even in Tokyo, not in north-east area.
    But I am trying to do my best and help each other even if its power is small. Seeing these comments, my tears fall. I felt we are the one.
    I can do nothing, but I would like to express our feelings like this.
    I hope there is no influence of tsunami in Pacific coast area, please be careful..
    Thank you for your mind.

    We are really praying that everyone over in Japan will be o.k. We hope that you and your families will recover from this disaster quickly. We also hope there are no more aftershocks. Stand strong and know that we are praying for each of you every day. May our Lord be with you.......We sure are!!!!! 🙂

    I think that we should just have alarms! It would be our fault if we were late for school then.

    March 16, 2011 at 9:04 am |
  68. Olivia

    I don't agree with Trevorm at all! Haiti will be riveved someday and I think Japan is in a worse situation. It will be very hard for the people to recover and so many have died or have not been found. They are sick, there are no vehicles or homes in that area, and the hosoitals are working so hard! It's not going to be easy to fix but if we help the other countries in need, they will be able to revive and live again.

    March 16, 2011 at 9:07 am |
  69. Sara

    I have looked thres some of the pictures on CNN News, and they are just breath taking. There really isnt much I can say, when i look at these. Im just in amazement. This is serious thing that Japen is going threw.
    I have a challenge, that each highschool does some sort of fund rasier to help out Japan, in anyway. Raise money, canned food drive, clothing drive, anything. We have everyhting here, while threw whole world is crashing.

    I am at a loss for words over this disaster. I couldn't even imagine looking and seeing this, MASSIVE wall of water just roaring toward you. I can just feel that feeling of sorrow as you realize what about my house? My family, friend? Where are they, and what has happened to them.

    I think it's time for everybody on earth to reflect in ourselves.

    Over how many years did the human beings damage the environment? Maybe the earthquake and the tsunami in Japan are only a subtle caution given by our Mother Earth.

    To everyone in Japan, I really hope you can come through all the tragedies you're facing right now because I felt really surprised when I see people in Japan face difficulties with smile and "genki", and that's really a great attitude when facing a big disaster. Hope god bless Japan.

    Oh Wow,there's an little earthquake right here in Taiwan while I'm giving the comment.

    Adults are always thinking about economy first. I hate that when our neighboring country has been damaged severly by the quake. I really feel sorry for them. The only thing I can do is pray and write these encouragemets to our neighbors. I really hope that Japan will soon get up again and rebuild itself. I also saw that our neighbors are really kind to each other. I give you Thumbs-Up in Korea. Please let us see your kind smiles again.

    What every body should do is travel and buy nice things and make cards for all those who were harmed. Also we should travel to japan to meet these people. :):):):):):):):):):):):):)

    My school is talking about the things that have been going on with japan. We overall our very sorry for what is going on there. I hope that the people in japan will all be ok. I wish that they find the lost and missing, and bring loved ones back together again. We are keeping Japan in our thoughts and prayers. Hopeing everything will turn for the better. And hearing about the radiation, makes it worse. hearing about how people will die because of being exposed to that much of it, its just horrible. I HOPE THINGS GET BETTER! 🙂

  82. Paige

    I hope those in Japan who have lost family and friends stay strong. We should all take a moment of our time and pray for those in Japan who have died and those who are hurt. Let's hope that the radiation problem is solved. We, as separate countries should form an alliance to help eachother in our times of need. 🙂

    my class is dicussing how hard it must be to be in japan right now.I think its horrible what happend in japan and how much trouble it must be leading to with the nuclear power plant disaster going on now too. I cant imagin how horrifying it must of been to see the tunami and feel the strength of the earth quake and see the remains of the city flattend and destroyed.

    I feel sorry for them, and I hope they can find all of those missing people. They should pray and try to find all of the peoples bodys are found that died, so they can see the bodys of people that are their family. I hope God can help them survive.

    I am a middle school teacher in North Carolina and my students are very concerned about the people in Japan. We learned about the nuclear plant and how a tsunami impacts a nation. Our thoughts are with you all.

    I think Japan can pull through this because they're a strong nation.
    I don't think that they'll struggle that much because they will always have the support of the U.S. nation.

    I think what is happening in Japan is really awful. Even though its one of the most worst disasters japan has ever had, i feel that Japan, is going to be okay. Japan is one strong and smart country, and we need to support them in this time of need.

    I think what happened in Japan was horrible probably the worst thing i have ever heard about Japan. I wish there was more we can do then raise money the only thing we can really do is help raise money or ship supplies because they have very few supplies , because they lost EVERYTHING,i really hope everyone that is lost will be found try and keep your heads up,i know this is a horrible time for Japan i will keep praying for Japan and i hope America can help Japan in a couple of ways instead of any,just a dollar a day will help. 🙂

    all i can say is wow....japan is in a horrific tragedy, and respectfully i shall tell how they could rebuild:
    1.Try to build buildings tsunami-proof
    2.Get the back-up generators built underground, to prevent flooding.
    3.Always have a shelter to house at least a couple thousand people in case of an earthquake or tsunami.

    We should help make these changes because they are our friends and no one should have to do this alone. 🙂

    Honestly, some people think and say we are doing everything we can...Thats NOT true! We could be giving the food, clean water, and bring ANY other supplies needed! I do think that there are people that need to be found! People that are missing, BUT alive! I DON'T think that people would like to help as much as they wish! If you want to help then get alot of people together and start a group to get supplies you think they would need!

Japan has moved 4 feet and the world has moved 4 inches. We all have to do something (like donating to the Red Cross) and saev Japan and their people. People have to line up at one small market just to get their food and water. Our school luckily has rasied the 1st day 50-70 dollars for the Red Cross. We all have to do our part to makere Japan safe. Please do something to help them! 😀 😀 😀 😀 😀 😀 😀 😀 😀

Please know that over here in Canada are doing all we can to save and help as many people as possible. You people are so brave and I know many people here in Canada could never be as brave as you people are. Evey one here is praying that ever thing will turn out O.K . Lets all hope the worst is over. I know you are all very scared of what may be coming but try your hardest not to give up on ever thing. We are sending r money to the Red Cross so they can help all you people in Japan. I would just like to say a small word of encouragement to the younger survivors. You are terrific and i am breathless when i see what you have all gone through and i promise me and so many other will never stop trying to help you all and i promise i will never ever ever give up on your country.

If everyone can donate a dollar a day it would be great and it would make a big difference! I hope that this will not happen again! Many of the people are homeless and many are dead!!! They don't have food, shelter, clothes and water! I think that mostof us are very lucky! :/

    I feel very bad about the earthquake and the tsunami that recenrly happened in Japan 😦 Hundreds of lives gone away by that tsunami and now there are probably about 900 people alive. And if every one was able to donate money anywhere it would be an amazing turn out. But sadly, when Japan was at it's normal place on the map, after the quake and the tsunami, Japan got moved 8 ft to a different place. So now, there is no clothes, food and no shelter for all the living people there. GOD BLESS JAPAN ♥ 😦

    At My School we are fundraising to help Japan through this rough time they are going through because every Pennie Counts but we should do more than that we should provide food, water, Clothes and shelter And I know what you all are thinking that we know that we should provide this and that but really every little bit counts. I hope you think about what I have said and donate something you will feel really good about yourselves after.:)

    I am very sad and sorry for all the lives that were lost in the disaster in Japan, and I'm sad that the people that had survived might not have the things they had before all the disasters. I hope everyone will be able to get back on their feet.

    i think that japan needs to find a way to find all the people and fix that nuclear power plant before that turns into something worse than just that. I also think that japan should evacuate to the other end of there contry. At least far enough away so that everyone can be safe for shore but the scientist should at keep working on the power plant i do think they are making progress.

    I wish i could help as much as i could. Being a twelve year old, its sort of hard to make a huge impact . I will say an extra prayer for everyone every single night, hoping it will help. I could never imagine walking up the next morning wondering where my family is, or my belongings? I will now take a serious look at my life, seeing what i need and what i don't need for myself because i can't even imagine have it all taken away. I will put my prayers in God's hands.

    I feel very sorry about the tragedy that happened in Japan!! All of the people who live their are probably very scared. That tragic disaster was very unexpected and it most likely wouldn't happen again (hopefully). Again i feel very badly about thee whole thing and i am just hope that everything turns out WELL for ALL of the victims!!!!!

    Wow! When I heard about the earthquake I thought that was the end of it, but I was clearly wrong. One earthquake is bad enough, but a tsunami is worse. I can't imagine how devastated those poor people are.

    I feel really bad for all the people who lost their homes, friends, family, and even life. On CNN student news I saw a person who survived the tsunami and all he had were 6 items: a credit card, a coin, a dollar bill, two receipts, and his life. I hope that all of Japan and all the countries who were stuck by the earthquake and tsunami to regain all the stuff they lost.

    the best thing to do right now is to know that the people in japan are under alot of stress and they have just gone through a huge disater as we all know and they need alot of prayer so if your not religous you can just think about them on a regular basis.
    Thanks so much for all you guys do to help us as students

    I will also try and encourge other schools to try and be out there and do what you can do to help these people think about how you would want people to help you if we had a huge disater.

    I think that people like us should do any thing we can to help Japan because thay have done so much for use and so we owe it to them. Pluse they have gone through so much with re-building after the bomb attack from us, but do you think there going to want to build it back up again.

    March 16, 2011 at 4:00 pm |
  214. Kayla

    i think that we should give all that we can to Japan becaus they give so much to us. And i think that also we should help them keep hope and encourage them to keep moving foward!!! 🙂

    I feel really bad for the people in Japan that have been robbed of almost everything they have. It's really sad that a country that had been having a good time, where things seemed to be going perfectly, had to end so quickly because of the earthquake and tsunami. It's also really sad that there was no way to have a warning that there would be an earthquake so people could go to another place to be safe.

    I'm praying for you japan, I pray that you are protected from any more natural disasters. I am praying for those who have a missing family member(s) and or has lost a family member(s). If i could could go and give my support and help those who cant help themselevs at this state, i would. But since i cant i am sending speritual support. But after everything is said and done be happy and thankful you have life.

    I think this disaster was very unexpected. The damage is going to mess with the whole world ,but it is most definitely going to be a HUGE problem for Japan. I feel very discouraged about what the 8.9 earthquake and bulldozing tsunami did. If i could go on tv and get the whole world to do a fundraiser or food drive or something to help japan i would. A lot of good inoccent people died in that disaster and people are looking for lost loved ones. I will in some way help Japan.

    When I first saw the news coverage on the disaster in Japan, I was horrified that such an awful thing had happened. So many people have lost their lives and their homes. "Why are there so many awful things in this world?" I asked myself. I decided that I would do my best to help the people of Japan, and I hope others agree. If you choose not to help them, just keep in mind that it could happen to you.

    I feel real sorry for all the people in Japan, and I thought when the earthquake happened it would have a big impact on the U.S., but when the tsunami struck I thought they were done forever. I would love to raise money for Japan, but I don't have any everyone should.

    I feel horrible for the people and families in Japan and around the world because they might not know how their relatives are if they live in Japan. Yet Japan is prone to earthquakes so they are better prepared. So this earthquake, though had a higher magnitude, won't be as bad as the one in Haiti.

    This tragedy is so sickening because it has changed the course of many, many lives. So many peopple have passed, it seems like the disaster in Japan will never end.

    My thoughts and support go to the people of Japan. You have endured so much over the past 100 years. Every time I see a Japanese car, I feel sad on the inside (which means that I feel sad a lot, because half the cars I see are Japanese).

    I think that when all of us hear about something like that, that happened somewhere else in the world, it really helps put everything into perspective for us. I know someone who has undergone some serious flooding, but after hearing about what happened in Japan. And watching all those videos and live footage it really changed the way he saw his problem. It really over all is a minor problem compared to Japans problem.

    I just want to tell my fellow students in Japan to act as the students and citizens did when Haiti was in trouble, and just keep believing never give up, because one day may be the worst but you always have to remember a new day always has a fresh and good start. Don't let this tragedy take away your spirit show how strong you really are and if you keep believing good things can happen.

    The crisis in Japan has probably scarred the Japanese but, I want to tell my fellow students all over the world that WE CAN and SHOULD do something to help out even if it comes down to passing out flyers that help notice to the world about how big the crisis is talk to your friends about it, heck even try starting up a conversation about it in class, all that is important is you care and are trying to help out. Lord Help Japan and other countries effected by this!!! O:)

    I think we should help by giving them supplies such as food so they don't run out, shelters for when another tsunami hits Japan again, and back-up generators underground to prevent it from flooding. By doing this we can keep more people alive for the next time a tsunami hits.

    It's just so terrible about what happened over there. I hope that those nulcear reactors don't explode because those poor people have been through enough already. I'm praying and I think the whole world is praying for Japan. I hope the Good Lord is watching over them.

    This is a hard, cruel, unfair smack upside the head for Japan. It's something that scares the living daylights out of me and anyone living in Japan that this is what mother nature can do and how distructive she can really be.

    I think that Japan is a place that needs help, if people can;t come together and help this time then when will we ever have world peace?
    i think that Japan deserves us to help it and if we don't who will? The whole thing that we need to focus on is that we need to help them or we're no better than them.

    I sympathize Japan for the huge suffering they're experiencing. I am just a student and could not help them financially. However, I could offer moral support and prayers for them.

    Lord, we are your people, sometimes sinful and may not deserve your mercy. We are very grateful not to experience what the Japanese experience. We humbly ask you Lord to please bless the souls of those who unfortunately died and bless the other Japanese to help them recover from the disaster. Amen.

    It breaks my heart to see the destruction in Japan. I watched a few videos of the tsunami hitting and it was unbelievable. The stories that struck me the most were how the Japanese people were orderly when getting supplies and didn't have the "all about me" attitude. I think this is another tradegy that will ultimately pull people together for the better.

    I am so sad about Japan! Our school is donating baby items to Japan (ex. diapers, baby food, blankets) for babies who lost everything in the earthquake/tsunami. We are also making 2,000 paper cranes to send to Japan, since paper cranes symbolize life, luck, recovery, and things like that. I really hope Japan recovers soon. I am so worried, kids from our school are moving back to Japan soon, and I am scared for them. I wish Japan the best of luck!

    After I saw the news about the tragedy in Japan,
    I couldn't easily fall asleep at night.
    I'm sad for those victims,
    and I'm also worried :
    if the same disaster happens to Taiwan,
    what can we do ?
    I can't image it.Taiwan is similar to Japan in MANY ways.
    On the same seismic belt.
    Having 4 nuclear power plants.
    Are we ready to face the fact?

    I have started a blanket drive in Palm Coast, FL. The response has been amazing. We are collecting blankets and baby supplies to be shipped to the victims in Japan by Mission Harvest America. It all started when my brother's aircraft carrier the George Washington in Atsugi, Japan asked for blanket donations because they were desperately needed. I posted it on Facebook, hoping to get some friends to donate a blanket. Now we have the schools, churches, businesses and the entire community involved. Look for our page on Facebook and think about what you can do to help.

    Everybody freaking out that the earthquake, tsunami, whirpool, and meltdown destroyed everything. But they forget about the most important thing... love! The disaster strengthened the love, it was the only the thing that wasn't lost. It wasn't just the people in Japan whose love was strengthened, but everybody around the world too! Just look at their actions, helping them by sending them supplies and raising money. Good things come from bad things.

    I believe Japan needs as much help as we can give it, during this tragic time. When it first happened, not many students in my school knew until CNN Student News did the show about the tragic event. I'm hoping the death toll quits rising and the survivors bar continues to grow. I would even join the rescue troops, as in experienced as I am, to save as many people as possible.
    But even more so do I hope that rescue teams will save people on time, because in a situation like this... It takes a second to loose another life of a victim.
    The tragedy strikes me very deeply since everybody is going on about the end of the world. What strikes me about it is that some believe the world will end because of massive quakes or even another great flood. Look how hard the earth quakes are starting to strike, and how far the tsunami reached.

    I think that America should be doing all we can do to give aide to Japan and all of the victims of the Tsunami. As Americans we should be helping those who are less fortunate than us, and do all we can to get them back on their feet.

    We are thinking of the people in Japan during this time of tragedy. We read "Sadako and the Thousand Paper Cranes." In Japan, there is an old tradition that if a person makes one thousand paper cranes and makes a a wish on each one, his wish will come true. Our wish is for Japan to have comfort and an improved situation during this terrible time. When we have finished the cranes, we hope to send them to a school in Japan.

    I think the disaster in Japan is eye-opening for the entire world. It's so great that when someone's in need there are so many others who will step up and help them out in times like these. I know I've donated and will continue to donate for the sake of the people stuck in this catastrophe. My prayers are with them all.

    Dear Japan,

    My sadness is kept here with me.
    But my love is with you.
    I'll pray for you daily.
    And I'll send some relief kits.
    But I want you to know you are always loved.

    I would just like to say that the people in Japan should keep their heads up, things will get better it just takes time. Even though this is a huge disaster and it will be hard to get over, just believing that things will get better will make that come true.

    (Maybe this comment is not understood very well because I do not know much Spanish and English)
    When I saw on the news what had happened in Japan, I was horrified. Can anyone imagine being locked in a car, for example, while a tsunami rushes to you? A message for those who have been living this nightmare: Mood, you are alive and have already passed the worst part, do not be sad for what you have lost, think what you have to encourage you, EVERYBODY IN THE WORLD is with you now , giving you both remote support (grants, this comments or the plate in the ps, for example) or helping you there, some risking their lives to save others. 🙂 I send all my support from here, a hug!

    I live in Las Vegas Nevada. I feel really bad for the citizens of Japan. I will try and think of a way to help. Every day now my class and I have been watching CNN Studet News to see and to hear about the things that happend in japan. I would hate to see that the people in Japan get ill or die that all ready have not. It is so devistating to hear about it. It sometimes makes me want to cry.

    First of all i think we should all help wioth the situation in japan right now because what would you do if a quake and a tsunamie hit your house.
    We should send in supplies in for the wounded ones and a radio to contact their friends and family.If we don't do something everyone there can die and Japan will be just a land full of rubble

    i had friends at school say that they think that 2012 is going to happen b/c of what is going on in Japan but i told them that its not because Jesus is with us and hes not going to let that happen. i think that its pretty sad whats happening to the people over in japan and that everyone should at least keep them in there prayers and help them out in anyway possible. i know that the youth group that i am in prays for the people over in Japan every thursday and sunday as a group. ♥

    This is a cruel, unfair, hard smack upside the head for Japan especialy their South island, Honshu. First it's an earthquake, then a tsunami and now it's a nuclear reactor, I think anyone and everyone who cares, should help as much as they can.

    I hope everyone is save. We are learn a lot about this at school. We learned that you have to stay in a build. I has wondering if there is anything that we can do. I just want to say that you can make a difference and it doesnt mader how you are and what you look like. Lets help the people that are in need of help or they lost all the things that they have.

    To the students in Japan: stay strong, we are thinking of you every day. I realize that my friends and I think about sports, video games, talking or texting friends on the phone, going home after school and eating snacks, or playing outside. But you are devastated and things are dangerous there. It makes me put things into perspective about your situation and my friends and I want to help. We are going to raise money here at school to help you. You are an inspiration to my friends and me here in Colorado. Please stay safe and strong.

    I really wish that this wouldn't have happened to them. First the earthquack, then the tsunami and now the weather is beating on them.

I only wish that I could be out there too.

    I think that this crisis in Japan will help the Prime Minister of Japan realize the importance of letting other countries help during a national crisis like this one. One this subsides I think that the leaders of Japan will start to offer more help to other countries during huge crisis's in their countries as well.

    In my opinion America should just go help, send recruits out! Instead of sitting at home and hoping stuff won't happen. All the nuclear trouble should be taken seriously, if Japan's economy plummets then we are in trouble.

    I think what has happened in Japan is horrible. We have been praying for it evey time we go to church since it happened. I'm going to try and talk my youth minister into a mission trip to Japan, or a fundraiser sometime. More people should be getting involved in things like this.

    Hopefully everything is going to be O.K. down their, America is one of the leading economys in the world, as well as Japan. The quake/tsunami will set the economy into a crisis and downfall if we don't take care of this immediately. History will just repeat itself as it usually does if we do not take immediate care of this.

    The thing that has me worried the most , is the children . . . . Many of them lost their parents and are currently orphans ? I think people should worry more about the children , than the radiation.

  423. Emma

    I heard about all the bad things happening in Japan and in Social Studies its all we talk about so our S.S. class decided to hold a bake sale with student council at lunch to earn money to send to Japan to help fix all the damage and give money to the workers who are helping fix the nuclear plant. You just have to remember that every penny counts so donate!

    This is reminiscent of the disaster of the atomic bombs in the 40s. The Japanese people have dealt with events like this before, so I think that they will be able to pull through now, even if it will take a decade or so.

    No country should have to suffer from this natural disaster. I am glad that different countries are setting aside there differences with the country to help them through this. I think that other regular people such as students, can help by raising money for the costs of repairs.

    They truely ARE heros! No doubt about it! They showed everyone the way things should be. Helping out strangers in need. Risking your life for a lot of people. That takes some bravness.. and I believe everyone in Japan is brave. Your in my prayers Japan! 🙂

  433. jobie

    I think that its a bad thing because the more disasters that hit japan means, that they will have to ask everyone for help and soon they will have to depend on everyone.So i think that the more we help is still a good thing just they nneed to do things for themselves too.

    March 17, 2011 at 7:14 pm |
  434. McKenzie

    i think everyone around the world just can't sit around and do nothing about this disaster. we need to actually DO something instead of sitting around, wishing a mircale will happen. these suffering people need desperate HELP! they have little shelter, food, and water. an earthquake, then a tsunami, and now a radiation leak? these are things that most people have nightmares about. well for the japanese this is a LIVING NIGHTMARE. we need to help these poor, suffering people. i'm praying that nothing else this tragic happens to japan ever again.

    When I first heard about the earthquake, I was horrified. I thought it would be just like Haiti. A year after the earthquake in Haiti, they still haven't recovered. However, Haiti is one of the poorest countries in the world, but Japan is far from weak. Japan will recover, although it will take time, but even though their devastation is much more than Haiti's, Japan will rebuild itself faster. Of course, then there was the tsunami! I watched the sludge creep across the land. I was amazed the water could be carrying fires on its surface! As I watched it, I was reminded of when I pour water on my driveway. It spreads out in every direction. What's worse though is that my classmates pointed and giggled at certain things the aerial camera picked up. They laughed as millions of people lost their lives. I don't think anyone really realizes how serious this is.

    i am very proud for the people who are working on the nuclear reactor and I am supporting Japan all the way. I am happy that people are donating to the red cross and helping Japan. I will pray for you.

    I'm Japanese and live in Tokyo,Japan now.we are being in the unpredictable situation. Because electric power are less provided than usual and almost everyday products ,for example rice, toilet paper and cans, are sold out, I have been teached by this disaster that we were materially affluent. We may have to learn the proverb "He is rich that has few wants." through this disaster.I had a lot,but I'm fine now.today is friday ! Friday is always awesome.

    I think that the damage in Japan can be fixed if we all chip in i think the damage can be fixed.

We need to dod a fundraise or bake sale or something to raise money for Japan.

    if i could tell those people anything it would be to just hang in there. i know that they are going through a hard time over there after an earthquake AND a tsunami. it had to have been terrifying for them. but, i'm sure if they wait then somebody will come to help them. tons of nations from the UN (including the US) are sending people to help rescue the people still in danger. i hope they can save as many people as possible and that those people come out safely or without harm. good luck japan!!

    I think the disaster in tragedy is awful and more people should be doing more. Obama hasn't been doing much. The latest I have heard on him was that he was playing golf somewhere when he should help with the fail reactor.

    The World is a big place, I bet if we work together Japan would be back on track in no time. My school is already having hat days and donations to gain money for the people in Japan, even if there are a lot of budget cuts to make. We should all do something to help, even writing a letter of encouragement to someone you know can help. COME ON EVERYONE!! Let's all work together, and do something to help!!!!!!!! <33333333333 🙂

    This is so sad what happened. But, at least, the worst is over; if another earthquake as bad as this one were to settle, they would be prepared. The best method of attack is suprise. Our school is doing a "dress-down day", where we wear casual clothes for a dollar (so long as it fits the dress code). The money will be sent to Japan, but I can't help thinking that there is mroe we can do to help....

    March 17, 2011 at 9:16 pm |
  461. Tia

    But this could be a lesson, too. So many countries are helping, this shows that although we may fight each other, we've still got each other's back. Even so, the earthquake was horrible. A horrible earthquake makes a horrible tsunami, and that breaks vital objects setting off explosions and fires and everything in a nightmare. We all can pitch in if we try.

    March 17, 2011 at 9:19 pm |

    i think japan needs our help because they ` re in need ; so many people are leaving japan ! i want my school to have a fundraiser for helping japan ! people will be more than welcomed to help . i know they will !

    I feel so bad for the people in Japan. six thousand are confirmed dead or missing at the present time. A 9.0 magnitude quake hit the country, which triggered a tsunami, and the people could possibly could radiation exposure. Imagine going through all of that! That's why a girl in my class suggested sending a care package, and if we don't have time to send one in class I will try to send one from home.

    I'm a Japanese university student watching CNN student news to learn English. I really appreciate warm and active supports from all over the world. Now, Japan is faced with serious situation, but we'll make every effort to reconstruct damaged region.

    May the AID get to those in temporary shelters SOON, with helicopter air drops of medical supplies, and food.

    I discovered this poem several months ago and find it very fitting for what the people of Japan have shown us and for those of us who have suffered and are still suffering in one form of another.

    Published in "Bereavement" magazine

    Written by: "Dayna Erickson" at the age of 13

    "Silent hurting heart"

    "Oh, nothing's wrong," She smiled,

    Grinning from ear to ear.

    The Frown that just was on her face

    just seemed to disappear.

    But deep down where secrets are kept,

    the pain began to swell.

    All the hurt insided of her

    just seem to stay and dwell.

    All the pain in her heart

    was too much for her to take

    Pretending everything's OK

    is much too hard to fake.

    She'd duck into the bathrooms

    and hide inside the stalls

    because no one could see her tears

    behind those dirty walls.

    She was sick and tired of losing

    and things never turning out right.

    She had no hope left in her

    She was ready to give up the fight.

    But she wiped away the teardrops,

    put a smile back on her face,

    pulled herself together and

    walked out of that place.

    Life went on and things got better.

    She thought that was a start.

    But still, no one could see inside

    her silent hurting heart. "

    I don't know what it's like to live through a natural disaster the size of Japan's, but my hopes and wishes go out to the country and all who are affected by the earthquake, tsunami, and nuclear plant problems. Also, I think it is ridiculous for people in America to be buying the radiation blockage pills. The US is over 5,000 miles away from Japan, and just because there is money to buy the pills, doesn't mean people should when they don't need it, and, risk their health from the side effects.

    When it's cloudy, you should always look on the bright side. Sure, there was a natural disaster, but take pride in the fact that you have lived threw it. The ones lost wouldn't wish us to sit around and give up on life.They would want us to clean up this disaster and get on with life.

    I believe that japan is strong enough to rebuild, but the tragedy in people's heart is hard to wash away. I am happy that I still have some little money to donate for helping. Japanese's strong faith has taught me a lot. They are stong to face the disaster, and they do every thing orderly. I will continuedly pray for them!

    It's horrible that this would happen. No matter how prepared you are for this kinds of natural disasters, the powers of nature will always be stronger than that of man. Everyone everywhere is doing everything we can to help them out, because it would be a great shame for such a wonderful country to lose her previous glory, so ganbare! Make nai de! Do your best! Don't give up! I will never stop praying for you until you are able to smile again.

    I think what happened in Japan with all the water and the earthquake was terrifying. I also heard that some countries that Japan had been with war in are not helping to get things together. That is not fair because what might happen in Japan effects the whole world and we can only stop the nuclear radioactive stuff if we all help. All the countries should pitch in a little to help Japan.

    I also live in South Korea. The earthquake in japan was one of the most shocking things I have ever heard. I knew that Japan has many earthquakes and have experienced a lot of them. But never in this size and damage. I knew that all Japanese buildings have high-tech anti-earthquake supports, beams, etc. But all those technologies going down like a pile of blocks, I never imagined that could ever happen. First the earthquake, next the missing&dead people, now the nuclear reactors going off. What's going to come next? I really hope Japan will get over with this. It will take a lot of time to recover, but I really think that if all the world work together, Japan will stood up again.
    May God bless all those who is missing so they can get back to their loved ones.

    They need to evacuate everyone ASAP. I say take some patrol troops out of Iraq and spend more time on relief efforts. They should probably test the food in Japan before consumption for radioactivity too.

    What happened in Japan was really sad. And I will pray every night that the stranded people get enough food and donations to start over. We have already given 64 million dollars in the first six days (as of yesterday). But compare that to the 200 million or more that we gave Haiti in the first six days!! Big difference!! You know if every one in the world gave a dollar each they would have billions and trillions!! And they could build new houses and walls and buildings and start over.

    Kayla – I think that we all should get together, to help Japan with all the food and other things that they need. Japan is equal to Hati, they had the same thing that happened to them, and they both need supplies.
    Dennis-i think the we should send japan resoures like food clothing and send more rescue people to find more survivors over in japan

    We of CT feel terrible for all my fellow students of Japan. We have been discussing of this disaster of your home in my ELA class. I personally think that the people of America whining for objects do not understand this horror.never give up hope stay together and always have hope in each other always stick together and help each other through this tragedy and help your family through this struggle

    I am a student from Kansas, and for the last week I have learned about the catastrophes that have been going on in Japan. I feel sad for all of these people that have died. Most countries are helping Japan. Many people need food, water, clothes, and medicines. I hope this catastrophe ends soon. We can help by collecting money and sending it.

    March 18, 2011 at 10:55 am |
  558. Isaiah and Shawn

    Dear students of Japan I heard about the earthquake and tsunami in Japan. I think you should evacuate Japan and let the workers help the plant so that not that radiation for others. I hope they fix the plant so that you could live safe in Japan. Japan should get better help.

    We wonder what is wrong with America's educational system. Maybe the disaster in Japan might expose part of the problem. American civilians teaching on military bases in Japan were told they could take voluntary leave as long as they understood they pay for their own plane ticket, they no longer have a job or benefits, they leave all their earthly goods behind except for a duffle bag. We don't respect teachers enough to give them a free ride home from possibly the worst disaster area this world has ever known?

    I'm from America and I think that this is just terrible. This is so devastating for the country. I think every school should start a fundraiser for Japan to make it better. I hope the people take care of the radiation so no one will get killed because it could affect other places too. Good luck Japan.

    Japan is such an advanced country that many country's in the world have always admire. Now that Japan is in its tragedy, we all should be helping to restore the country, because it is such a heartbreak to see a beautiful country go into chaos. Although it may take a while to fix, if we all work together Japan can return to its glory.

    March 18, 2011 at 11:39 am |
  574. Drew

    Hi Carl,
    I hope that the people in Japan have support from there famillies and friends alike. Our school is trying to start a found raiser for the people of japan that need help. We hope that our donations can help save people in japan from starvation and lose of home. Also i think that the scientist at the nuclear power plant are doing great and just want to thank them for risking there lives for ours. So thank you and hope this disaster eends soon.

    In my middle school that i attend, we have been learning about the situtation in Japan. What has happened is tragic and devistating. It must have been a heartbreak for the people who have lost famiyl members and friends.

  576. Will

    Yes, I feel so bad for Japan after what has happened to them. I wish there was more I could do to help. Im just happy that a lot of people still have their lives left. My heart goes out to Japan, and I hope they can get through this tradgedy.

  577. Michael

    This is probably the worst state Japan has ever been in. Its terrible what happened to the people of Japan and I know I don't stand alone when I say that my thoughts, hopes and prayers go out to every single person effected by this terrible disaster. And if the devistation caused by this Earthquake-Tsunami disaster isn't enough, Japan must now deal over the threat of a nuclear meltdown in one of their plants. I hope that I an not the only one that will continue to pray for the safety of the people of Japan.

    All we can do is hope and pray that everyone gets out safe and sound. – Caitlyn and Mya

  593. Djimon, Bertha

    We think that Its going to be hard for Japan to recover from this tradegy. Therefore, families are going to be separated and they'll probably try start their lifes' over in a diffrent country but it'll be hard to adapt. Also im really worried and we hope this tragedy gets better.

    March 18, 2011 at 11:58 am |

    Miguel: my school is talking about the things that have been going on with Japan. We overall our Very sorry for what is going on there. I hope that the people in Japan will be okay. I wish that they find the lost and missing, and bring loved ones back together again. We are keeping Japan in our thoughts and prayers. Hopping everything will turn for the better. And hearing about the radiation, makes it worse, hearing about how people will die because of being exposed to that much of it, it's just horrible. I HOPE THINGS GET BETTER!!!

    I think that the tsunami and the earthquake was really trageic. I feel very bad and thats amazing how two things can happen at the same time such as the tsunami and the earthquake.I also, think that it is very smart that most people are evacuating from tokyo because they are doing the right thing and being safe.But, it is very sad how some people don't even know where there family members are and have to leave everything behind.

    March 18, 2011 at 12:01 pm |
  605. Isaiah and Christophe

    We feel so bad about the earthquake in Japan. We hope that the people that were affected recover quickly. The total loss in lives are very large and many people have lost their homes, families, and property. The nuclear powerplant is also causing a major problem in the enviorment and the radiation levels are high and could cause alot of people to get sick. The tsunami caused tremendous amounts of damage to japan and a little to California.

    March 18, 2011 at 12:01 pm |
  606. Jordan and Anika

    We think that the tragedy is'nt just affecting Japan. It is brining all the nations closer. It did suck that the Earthquake, Tsunami, and Powerplant all happened but it does have some good affects. just look at all the comments from all around the world wishing luck and health to all the people in Japan. We think we should take this as an example and not just stand around. When the earthquake
    Hati we all helped. Why can't we do that now?

    March 18, 2011 at 12:01 pm |

    john: i think this problem is horrible because of the radiation that can contaminate the WORLD!

    We think the tragedy in Japan was awful and we hope they can recover. The Japanese people caught up in this horrible situation have been exposed to harmful events such as losing their home, losing their buisness , or just getting hurt badly. If we could do anything to help we would do whatever we could. We could donate money or start a foundation to make money. Just the littlest thing could make a big difference.

    It is horrible that some many people are having to go through that. A country moved altogether by 8ft. ? I remember watching on the discovery channel that all the land was once connected. then earthquakes and cracks started splitting the land and sending it in different directions. Maybe the earth isn't done. Maybe in a thousand years more the world will look differently than it does now. But thats if we last that long on this Earth.

    I think that they should get a chemical or like a foam that they can cover the plant with to stop escaping radiation. I send my sympathy to everyone who has been affected by the accident.

  627. Daijah

    Well, I feel very sorry the people in the japan and I hope that they will find a solution to fixing all of the distruction that recetly happened. Im pretty sure that the radiation in japan will not reach the U.S. but all we can do is pray for us and the people in japan.

    Dear Japan:
    We are so sorry to hear about what happened. It is not fair that you should get an earthquake,tsunami,and the problem with your nuclear power plant. We pray that at the end of the day everything is going to turn out alright. Remember that things get worse before they get better.

    Dear,Japan

    We are terribly sorry for all you have gone through. Here in America we are doing all we can to help out. Such as having the Red Cross donate
    money from all of us here in America. What happened to you was a very dry situation that hit a lot of people in the heart. We hope that the worst is over. We are keeping you in our prayers. #PrayForJapan

    We pray for the people in Japan that were victims of the catastrophe. We hope things get better for all of you. We also hope that the people in the area of the radiation of the power plants end up with nothing serious. You have the support of the United States. If you ever need anything, American government will help you.

    Dear people of Japan,

    Sometimes I just wish that the people in the United States could act differently. We've become so mentally blinded about what we want and what others need. Also we forget to appreciate the little things until something horrible happens.I just want to say that I'm sincerely devastated about what came your way. I also want you to know that we are here for you and we will do everything in our power to help. You know it kills me to hear people talk about the weather here in C.T. I mean look at what happened to you! We pray that you'll get better over time.

    They are doing all they can... people keeping constant effort on making sure the nuclear cores don't melt down
    and the parents and guardians making sure the children are safe by either leaving the area or keeping watch to see if the radiation reaches them....
    the students and young ones have it tough to... keeping morale up and helping everyone.
    there are always tragedies or events that make a country come together and at times the whole world...

    This event in Japan has shown myself that if an earthquake hits where i live, it might end up like how Japan looks like. Everyone should have an emergency kit in their homes so they have enough food and water for a long period of time. Everyone that was hit in Japan are in my prayers. ❤

    I can't believe that this happened to Japan. Now the country is in ruins and it may take years to rebuild. Every person on facebook that sees this should post a "Help Japan" post and see how many people like it or comment to see if people really care like they should. Japan is one of the most advanced countries in the world and we should be doing more to help.

    I think that nations all over should help in every way an I am sure that japan would have done the same if some one else was to have an earthquake and tsunami.And I think that they would be very grateful I know my school is doing a penny war and all the money is going to the red cross for the hurt victims for the in japan.

As a kid I feel like I can't do anything but, we all can. we can listen and spread their story and make sure everyone knows they need help. Be brave Japan!!! They can't pull through without our help. I believe we need to hold hands across the world to make an unbreakable bond. When a country is in help the world pulls together to create a miracle.

    The world has recently been struck by many horrible catastrophes. As is the habit of the media, everyone has forgotten about Katrina. Everyone has forgotten about Chile. Everyone has forgotten about Haiti. At some point we, the future of this crazy place called earth, have to realize that these things don't go away any more than they stop happening. We have to pull together. By the time this generation of students steps in, all the dictators will have died and their weaker heirs will have stepped in. I call every student in this world. We must become leaders and we must pull together. Man-kind is a tiny half-blip on the history of this world. The earth will be here long after we die out, so what is the point of fighting over land that will belong to noone in a couple million years.

    I am one of Japanese, but I would like you to be more focused on how disaster victims are making intense effort to rebuild their daily lives. I know earthquake, tsunami and radiation leak are scary, but the important thing is conducting what we can do now diligently with patience. For example, victims affected a little lighter are helping those affected heavily sharing food, water, and even fuel. People not directly affected by the quake are cooperating by saving electricity to avoid an unexpected blackout due to the shortage of electricity. I would not like you to dismiss these facts with cultural difference and like you to support Japan for a long time. It is definitely not easy to recover from the disaster whether the country is advanced or advancing.

    Here we have been experiencing so many aftershocks and the capital is still paralyzed, but things are getting slightly better. People in Tokyo are limiting their use and sending electricity, water, gas and other stuff to the most suffered areas in the Northern Japan, but what we can do within the country is very limited. So far we have received so many aids, personals, donations from overseas and we really appreciate them, but thousands of people are still missing, incl. 500 foreigners, people up north don't have enough gas to heat themselves up, food to feed themselves, clothes to protect themselves from the severe snowy weather. If you could spare us a little more help and concern, we'd appreciate them more than anything else. Thank you.I am prying for you japan! Keep in mind that you are loved by people everywhere.

    I think that we should definitely do everything we can to support Japan in their time of need and I think that in time (most likely years) it will rebuild itself since it IS a technologically-advanced country, while the lesser countries (in economic and financial terms) such as Haiti, will have a much more dificult time rebuilding its community. But even so, we should still reach out to them.

    I feel dearly sorry for Japan and feel everyone should make whatever effort they can to help, but Japan is the only one in trouble or effected by this. Hawaii, Western California, and some parts of alaska have also been minorly effected; also,this will effected both our and other countries' economies aswell. What, with all of the trading and other things like that. Another thing to think about is the technology industry, Japan played a big role in that; how will that effect the world? I love Japan greatly, in fact it's one of my favorite countries, but even though the destruction of Japan and the safety of their people is a very big concern right now, we have to remember that it's not the only issue.

    I hope everything turns out O.K. Japan(:...

    To those in Japan,
    I can not imagine the pain u must be feeling and even though you may have lost a lot you have never lost hope, love, and courage you have just become more appreciative of these qualities. That is why we admire and love you. Every second you are on our minds and will be praying for you but in the meantime dont be clouded over by the situation.Learn to dance in the rain and pick yourself up again. You are heroes and you will do great things in this world. You just have to BELIEVE in yourself, the people around you, and the power of God.

    its a big tragedy to all of us but sort of our falt to, if we were ready
    there would have been less damage but, we didnt know that it would happen. I also think we should all try to help japan so no ones still

    In my mind i dont think we should be giving Japan Tons of money, if this ever happened to us do you think country would be giving us billions of dollars, i dont think so. We need to lower our donations to Japan. Yeah sure they are in need of help but they got through world war II by themselves they can get through this.

    I can understand the importance of helping Japan. However, we as Americans need to realize that we need to help ourselves before another country. America barely has enough money to support itself, so why use the money we don't have to help a foreign country when we are in need. It may sound harsh, but it is reality.

    feel very bad about the earthquake and the tsunami that recenrly happened in Japan Hundreds of lives gone away by that tsunami and now there are probably about 900 people alive. And if every one was able to donate money anywhere it would be an amazing turn out. But sadly, when Japan was at it's normal place on the map, after the quake and the tsunami, Japan got moved 8 ft to a different place. So now, there is no clothes, food and no shelter for all the living people there. GOD BLESS JAPAN ♥ AND AL THAT ARE THERE 3

    Japan is fighting for their lives right now they are so brave to go through that. I think we should get money from anybody who wants to donate and give it to them to rebuild.

  750. Triston

    Japan had many earth quakes and they will recover it would be like the San Francisco 30 years ago and i hope that the nuclear proplem ends like There Mile Island and hopefully not like Chernoby. And if some thing like Chernobly happens lets hope that it is a small town not city like Tokyo.

    i think what happened was very tragic but we could not have done anything besides be warned, i think its good that many people are trying to help Japan to most of their ability but also Japan should be watching the radio activity around that area thats also very important.

  768. Tiffinie

    I believe the tragedy in Japan is, in a twisted way, something good. Not in the way that thousands of people died and millions of homes were lost. In the way that so many people are offering help to Japan. It's bringing nations together for one cause. So to all you out there suffering, hold on. Help is coming and you ARE strong enough to pull through!

    Well, after that extremely unfortunate sequence of events, I think everyone around the world should count his or her blessings. Every one of us has it better than they do right now, and we should be thankful for what God has given us. In addition, we should show our support for the people of Japan, perhaps by donating money or supplies. I'm sure every bit of assistance means a lot to them.

    Dear students:
    Hello from Madrid, Spain. I´m very sorry about the disaster you had living. I wish you and your family are OK. Catastrophes like the one on Japan, don´t occur here in Spain, for that reason I can not know how those who now are reading this message exceeds the time so intense. It sure was difficult and hard. Therefore I wish you well in the future to all.

    i'm sure all the world konws what is hapening to Japan. But what is the use to know if we don't help them!!
    i think must people didn't realize the big impact this will create, not only for japan but for many other countries. Radiation is serious and dificult topic we must be consern of.
    i'll pray for all the inocent people in japan, but i also believe "all things happen for a reason, we must stand up as much times as you need, be strong & go on".

    What has happen is a great tradegy that will remain a part of our thoughts for years to come. What we must do now, at this very moment, is stand up and help them in their time in need because chances are that they would do the same for us if it ever happened, hopefully not. Bless everyone in Japan and my heart goes out to all the the families and individuals that went through this catastrophe.

    I feel really bad for them, they didn't deserve any of the things that happen. If people say California was hit bad then they should really think of where it started from and how those people over there are feeling. Also I think that more countries should get involved in helping these guys out, especially because they make almost all of our things. I send Hope and Love over to Japan!

    Japan is in my prayers. I couldn't even imagine this happening to us here. The workers at the power plant are defitnitely true heroes. They are putting their life on the line for millions of other people. Please listen to the following though:
    We need to send aid, but we mostly need there is doctors. They have overcrowed hosiptals and thats where we need to be to save lives. Obama needs to get on Japan. Maybe if he tries and thinks of great ways to fix everything there and fast, I and some other people may have more respect for the man. Please think about this. Thank you for your time, when you read this.

  811. Leila

    We really should do something to help for Japan. Haiti's at least getting up and about with their election, but Japan is still getting aftershocks that may just cause more damage for them. Japan is a big part of America in the business department, so whatever Japan's working on – tsunami and/or earthquake related or not – America should be part of it, too. So, we need to help and get working fast if we want Japan up and about just as Haiti is!

    March 21, 2011 at 9:23 pm |

    Japanese people should be honored for their courage and bravery for surviving this earthquake and tsunami. Everyone should honor them properly and respectfully. ^-^

    We think the tragedy in Japan was horrible! more people should help with the tragedy. People should donate food to help the workes that are brave enough to stay. we should represent the people in Japan that are staying to help out. They need tractors to dig up all the mess. Most people are very worried because alot of the world and culture is there. it will effect our seasons. we hope that they will be okay and see what we can do to help!

    Dear Japan:
    you are a very strong country, i think that in few years you are going to regain normal. because if you survive to a war, you are going to survive to an earthquake.
    Good luck.

    This is all just really sad, all of that destruction. Just imagine: an 8-foot wall of water coming at you 500 miles an hour! Now that's scary! I feel really bad for all who had families who died.

    i think that this is very saddening, we should help Japan because if this happened to the U.S, we would want everyone to help us in our cause. i hope this will never happen again in many of our lifetimes and generations

  847. Nyjee

    I think that the U.S. should have a fundraiser. I think that we would bring in a great deal of money. We should respect what Japan has gave us, we should help them out. There is no reason to be cruel because they trade with us!!!!!! They are really important because almost everything we have is from Japan.

    March 22, 2011 at 2:49 pm |

    I feel sad for the poor people in Japan, having to go through the earthquake and tsunami. I hope they rebuild their homes soon, get the medical attention they need and forget those awful experiences soon.
    Me and my friend, Amanda, are raising money at our school to donate to the Red Cross, because I want Japan to recover. We started yesterday, and now we have almost $20. I wish them the best of luck!

    I feel bad for the people on Japan. All those houses are gone. The thing we could do at least is pitch in some money . It wouldn't even matter if was a dollar. Thousands of bodies were gone in that Tsunami. I feel bad for them. I hope that they are okay.

    March 22, 2011 at 2:58 pm |

    I feel so sorry for Japan because how much damage they had. Houses
    were knocked down in Japan. If you think about how many people was killed or injured
    during that time. I hope this never happens again to the people in Japan.

    March 22, 2011 at 3:00 pm |
  856. Hezekiah

    I think that the people in Japan can recover and start up their usual life after a while because the country survived the earthquake and tsunami so they should be able to stop a nuclear meltdown, and start their way of life again soon. Best wishes

    March 22, 2011 at 3:00 pm |
  857. Darante

    I fell so sad for what happened in Japan if I could do anything I would do it. If I could go down there and help I would i wish that the tsunami came here in stead of going there killing all of those people.

    March 22, 2011 at 3:01 pm |
  858. Mario

    I feel sorry for Japan because they have to face all of that stuff and they have a to face the fact that they had a earthquake. They could have died form all the damage form the earthquake and the aftershock.

    March 22, 2011 at 3:03 pm |
  859. Spencer

    I think the students of Japan should volunteer and donate to help your community and environment to clean up. So consider this, I wish you all good luck and safe lives. Other people should raise money like sell cookies and rebuild houses for money. I hope you all stay safe and this never happens again.

    March 22, 2011 at 3:03 pm |

    I think that the tragedy in Japan was horrible I feel sorry for them. I wish them luck and the people who really got hurt I hope they get better. The things that happened in Haiti that really hurts and I now it happened to Japan why does it happens. The earthquakes is a disaster to the places it happened in.

    I think the tragedy in Japan was horrible. A lot of homes were destroyed and I feel so bad for all of the people who lost there love ones. I pray a miracle will happen, and I hope something like this will never happen to Japan again.

    After the tsunami it was really sad to see how things looked in Japan. It was sad to see the pieces that once was part of a house on the ground scattered in pieces. I really hope the problems in Japan turn around for the best, because the best is what they deserve. I know that things will get better in time. I also know that Japan will recover and be a strong state once again.

    I feel terrible about the tragedy in Japan. Im glad websites, stores and ordinary pedestrians are raising money to help Japan. Japan needs to stay positive and keep fighting to get things better.

    They should send their best team of newkler team in to test it and see what made the smoke rise out of the building and have the smarts scientist go in and test the air to see what type of gas is in their.

  865. kimbreale

    I think what happened in Japan was awful. Also I think that they should move some were different.I feel bad for the people in Japan. We should donate our money to the people in Japan. It was like what happened to Haiti. I also feel bad for the people who died. Japan is a large country. How did that happen?

    March 22, 2011 at 3:10 pm |
  866. Tashawna

    I think what happen in Japan is horrible because I can picture my self being in a situation like that. I don't know how it feel to be in a earth quake because i never been in one before but when I just viewed the video it looked and seemed sad. All the people who got killed, and injured. You all have my heart and my soul and my prayers (= <3.

    March 22, 2011 at 3:10 pm |
  867. jakayla

    The tragedy in Japan is terrible but if they just keep there heads up high everything will be okay. When I heard about what happened I was devastated and even more devastated about what happened after the earthquake. Japan is somewhat like Haiti, something terrible happened and slowly good things happened. Japan has my best wishes to get better.

    March 22, 2011 at 3:12 pm |

    I think that if we work together we can beat this.
    Do you think so?I would love to help.
    Because I know that the Japanese would help us if that happened.
    Do you think? I know,because our country are good friends.

    The horrible tragedy that has happened in Japan is very very heart breaking because it hit 250 miles into Japan. All I am saying is I hope they find all the dead or injured bodies and get back up on their feet .

    I can't even say how bad I hurt for them they are in a really situation. I can't even picture my self in that situation. They stay strong not putting there heads down, keep hope, never let go, GOD is coming for you. You might be going thought this now but late you got blessings coming for you. GOD never leaves you nor never forsake you! I wish you all the best of luck I really hope GOD hear your prayers! You all will be in my prayer ! Good luck 😦

    I think Japan can get pass the reactors and the hurt and pain of losing love ones. I know all japanese people will live the way they did before they lost every thing. I just want to say that they should keep trying to get those reactors fixed

    March 22, 2011 at 3:16 pm |
  873. christina

    I think that the people in Japan feel sad because they had a earthquake and they need money to buy their things. I wish I was there because I would have helped them out even though I'm young.

    March 22, 2011 at 3:17 pm |
  874. Tyler

    In my opinion I think that the event was very bad. I feel the pain for the people in Japan for there loss and hope that if any loved ones are still missing that they are found alive. If I was old enough I would drop everything and volenteer to go there representing our country and help dig through all the ruble. I know that anyone who has sympathy would do that to.

    March 22, 2011 at 3:31 pm |
  875. lorenzo

    I think the that Japan should go to other countries for help , because some people are still stuck under the wood that fell down and maybe with a little help more people can be found. I the US should raise money for Japan.

    March 22, 2011 at 3:31 pm |
  876. ella

    Since Japan had this big earthquake, tsunami, and nuclear radiation poisoning, I think that we should do everything we can to help them out like donate money, food, and other things.

    March 22, 2011 at 4:26 pm |
  877. KehLee

    I feel Super bad for japan because I wonder what it would be like if it was us in that situation. I would be super scared and a lot of people would die. I fell the worst about how nobody knew about the tsunami so the people that thought they had a chance probably didnt because the tsunami washed them all away. I would be absoultely TERRIFIED!

    March 22, 2011 at 4:26 pm |
  878. Kelly

    The disaster that happened in Japan was dreadful. I was shocked when I heard about it. I never seen anything like that before in my entire life. If I have seen it before it would of been a small one. But in Japan they had a earthquake, tsunami. and also a nuclear disaster with radiation which makes the people of Japan scared. I WILL PRAY FOR EVERYONE AT JAPAN for your safety every day until you guys are back up on your feet being safe.

    March 22, 2011 at 4:29 pm |

    I feel really bad for the people in Japan. But I also want to say good job for hanging on in the earthquake and the tsunami. I'll pray for you and hope that every thing goes well. I will do any thing that will help any of you people. I will send you food, clothes, shelter and water any thing you want just look me up on face book and send me a message and I will respond to you as fast as I can.

  880. Courtney

    When I heard about it, I was surprised but also a bit scared. I was scared for the people living there, but I was also surprised because that is such a big earthquake. The tsunami was the worst part. I think it did the most damage. I also hope that they get the nuclear power plants under control soon.

    March 22, 2011 at 4:30 pm |

    I feel soo bad for the people in Japan. I think people should do everything they can to help out Japan and I hope they can rebuild their country so everyone can come back who has left. I just hope everyone there knows that the whole world is supporting you guys!

    What happened in Japan was a tragety. None of those people deserved this. All we can really do is pray and hope. People have lost their homes, families, and their lifes. All they really have now is hope, hope is all you could ever have at a time like this. I hope they can cope with such a great tragety.

    I think it is horrible because people arent helping as much as they can and i think it will affect the whole entire world. I think we can help even if it means one can of soup. It will even help by making them a card. they will have hope and know that we care about them.

    March 22, 2011 at 4:39 pm |

    hope and pray that everyone in Japan is safe and healthy. It is a true tradgedy. They have been though so much and need our help. We should donat money and try and help the people in Japan.

    Hi Japan. I´m Rubén. I live in Madrid, Spain.
    My encouraging comment is:
    Be strong. You´ll get out of this nuclear crisis and Japan will be rebuild in a very short period of time. Countries like United States and even Spain are helping in this task. Soon, the earthquake and the tsunami will be history and will forget this desaster.

    My Dear Students in Japan,
    When I first learned about the the tsunami/earthquake, I was speechless, terrified, horrified, amazed but MOST importantly I felt your pain. I may only be a fourth grader in elementary school, but unlike my peers, I see things differently. As you scroll down this webpage, remember you are not alone. So many people are working really hard to help you recover from this disaster. I cannot truthfully say that the family members you may or may or may not have lost will be found neither will they be healthy if you do find the again. I don't know the full impact of this treacherous natural assault to your country. All I know is that you CANNOT lose hope. We will work to protect you as best as we can.
    Goodbye, your friend Olivia

    March 22, 2011 at 5:41 pm |

    WE LOVE YOU!!!!!!!!!! Don't forget it

    I hope for the best for Japan with the toxens and the earthquake aftershocks.... I hope that the ones who are still trapped and lost out in the rubble will be found and returned to their loved ones hoping and praying for them everynight. This is really hard to imagine if it had happened to us in the U.S.. We are very lucky people... I hope for the best. ♥

  896. Nicole

    I hate the fact that this has happened to Japan or in that case, anywhere that this could have happened. My heart is with you guys over seas and I hope that everything gets fixed up very soon. My club, the Interact Rotary club, is doing two fundraisers in the upcoming weeks to help the people in Japan. The first one is having students pay 1 dollar to get a wrist band so that they can go wear pajamas to school for a day and the second is paying a dollar to get your pinkie painted purple and all the money is going to Japan =).

    The tragedy in Japan hit them hard, and although there are other problems in the world right now I think everyone should stop and take a stand to help Japan recover.

  899. stephanie

    Japan is a really strong country, i believe that they will be able to come back from this within the next few years with help from the rest of the world. Tragedies really suck but in the long run they make youh stronger.

    One of my very close friend Suna, who is from Japan, moved back there three weeks before the diasaster. Luckily, they were able to leave their families estate and fly to England very soon. Suna's father has a travelling job. I'm happy that they were able to escape.

    But as for the victims and those unlucky. I offer my prayers. I just wish we could solve problems before they happened.

    March 22, 2011 at 10:36 pm |

    If everyone at your school donated at least $5.00-$20.00 we could earn enough money to maybe give to the red cross or some other organization that helps countries that are affected by natural disasters so, they could buy medication, food, water, etc......

    March 22, 2011 at 10:40 pm |

    This is tragic 😦

    March 22, 2011 at 10:42 pm |

    I think everyone should donate 5-20 dollars and give it to an organization that helps countries that have been hit by a natural disaster so they can by food water and more:-)

    First off, I would like to send my Best wishes to everyone in Japan who lost a loved one, or has a loved one missing. I'd also like to give a shoutout to anyone helping out there. You are the men and women who give broken / lost families hope. To everyone in Japan, the world is with you, with hopes for your well being.

    i feel bad about what happened in japan if i could i would sell lemonade for 2.00 for people so i would send the money to japan then they would get some money and they could rebuild slowly and it would be like nothing happened

    With what has happened with Japan it is scary. The people who has survived are lucky because most people with that disaster that i saw dont survive and there are only a hand ful of people that were found.

    I think that we should be helping out in Japan, because they are our allies. I also think that if you can you should try and help out in whatever way possible.We as a nation should be helping out each other and our friends.

    March 23, 2011 at 11:24 am |
  918. garrett

    I feel really bad to the people in Japan. I think that we should try and raise a good amount of money and donate it to them!

  919. Daniel

    I think that people in Japan should leave or help out. I feel bad for them because so many people died and their country is messed up. They were hit by tsunamis and an earthquake with many aftershocks. A nuclear plant also exploded and I also heard that there was a volcano before the earthquake. I think every country should help Japan.

    March 23, 2011 at 11:25 am |
  920. Daniel

    I think that we can do a lot to help all of the people in Japan. We can send money, food, water, or even clothes. Anything would help people get through this, and they do want help. If you live there you can share your house, or help rebuild many houses. Even the smallest things can help them out a lot.

    March 23, 2011 at 11:26 am |
  921. jacob

    I feel so sorry for the Japanese because there home is destroyed and they don’t deserve that no one does. I wish I could go and help any way I could because if that happened to me I would like help.

    March 23, 2011 at 11:26 am |

    I think that if you are in Japan to get ou or help out. All of the other countries are helping you even people in South Korea who had very bad conflicts with Japan in the past. So if you are in Japan and out of your house at least try and help these people.

    This is such a tragedy. I feel so bad. I hate when things happen like this. It makes me so upset. And then people say how bad there day and life is, but have you EVER suffered as badly as These poor people in Japan are? Have you EVER thought about that?

    I feel really sympathetic for the people in Japan. I think the people who complain about their depressing lives is pathetic compared to what the people in Japan have to endure right now. I wish I, myself could do more to help.

    I think that the tragedy that struck Japan was very sad and heart breaking. If it was only the earthquake that occurred, then maybe the damage wouldn't be so bad. But instead, the tsunami came afterwards too. Which, as a result, made things a lot worse than they should be. I think that we should try and do everything we can to help and hope for the best.

    I feel really bad for the people in Japan. They lost a lot of loved ones. They also lost there homes. I think we should all help out by donating some money. We should also keep them in our prayers. It is a terrible tragedy. I hope that Japan gets better and gets back to the way they were. I also hope that they get a lot of help.

    what happened in japan reminds us of how fragile life is and how much we have to enjoy everything life brings our way because it might be here today but tomorrow people you love and care about could be gone before you know it . I give my best wishes to the great people of japan god bless them watch over them and secure them and help them recover from this horrible tragedy.

    I know that natural disasters happen all of the time, and they cause a lot of harm to people and their homes.But I have hope that they will recover from all of the damaged caused in the quake/tsunami,and will stay strong and have faith.I may not know what its like to have my house distorted looking and throne all over the place,but i know what its like to loose a family member.It may feel like the world is cruel to you and i but just think they might be happy in whatever place they are in.so feel happy for the because they don't want to see you cry.Just think, you always feel like you have someone watching you and it might just be a family member that you lost that day.

    The tragedy in Japan is terrible, so many lives lost, so many things ruined. On the upside, this disaster has shown the true character of the Japanese people. Through an earthquake, a tsunami, and a nuclear meltdown threat these people have remained strong, and many are positive of Japan's future. Plus, there have been no reports of people stealing or looting stores and houses in the hardest hit areas. This is a testament to the Japanese. For all Japanese students reading this, you guys are awesome!

    earthquakes really shake people up (no pun intended) and it takes a while for japan to get back on its feet( again no pun intended) i know that Haiti is still trying to get back on their feet so its a good thing that so many countries help the areas effected by big earthquakes like this one and the one in haiti

    A lot has been said about the diaster. Many have expressed their sincerity and sorrow on this comment page, and I can't compete with their advice and beautiful words but I would all the japanese to know that they are all in our minds and heart, and, although we weren't directly affected by the earthquake\tsunami\nuclear reactor trouble we still feel your pain. We are doing what we can to help. I'm so sorry that I am just a kid. If I was an adult I would be over in Japan in a heartbeat.

    At my school I'm friends with three girls who are having a fundraiser where if you donate a dolar for Japan, you will get a ticket, 10 chances to win a free ice cream pass, and 1 chance to win a giftcard to DQ. So far they have raised $123.23 in three days. I would like to tell all of the children in Japan that if they believe, their dream for a safe place to live, the dream could come true.

    The disaster that occurred in Japan is very serious and that it shouldn’t be taken lightly. Likewise, this will be a very tough time for the people of Japan to recover from. I think that with a little help from everyone we can help Japan rebuild what was lost during the disaster as well as giving them a brighter future to look forward to. Finally, for the students of Japan I wish them luck in their recovery from this tragic event and I want to remind them to think positive.

    I used to live in Japan. Today, none of my friends are living in Tokyo anymore. The possibility of nuclear radioactivity scared them away.
    The worst part lays in what happened during the earthquake.
    We are used and prepared for the usual 30 seconds level 4 earthquakes but not one of this magnitude nor that long period of time. My best friend Jason's nights are filled with nightmares after experiencing a near-to-death experience when the train he was in almost flipped over. So, I pray for him. I also pray for Leila whose 12 years old brother is still missing. He finished class early and was on his way home. Only he never got there. Most of all, I invite you all to make time for a minute of silence wherever you are.

This also makes me think about everything that we complain about; it makes me take another look at what other people truly have to complain about. And that I'm fortunate for what I have and I should appreciate of what I have. I feel horrible about what happened and I think that people handled it very well by leaving Japan and going somewhere saver for a few days. I wish everyone the best in Japan!

    Earthquakes are life threatening disasters that can change lives permanetly. Our school had "Jammies for Japan", three days that you had to pay one dollar to wear your pajamas to school. All of the money went to support Japan. I think schools should do fundraisers like ours to help Japan while having fun. Just remember, wouldn't you like that if you were them?

    I hope everyone can look at it from the people in Japans perspective knowing everyone can make a difference we should help japan to thrive as it used to. I hope all the people lost will be found and that they all rebuild this great city. 🙂

    My thoughts and prayers go out to japan. Japan needs all the help they can get, this is not longer a political issue but a human issue. this is a human to human issue. We need to help them out as much as we can and if you can't help try and rase awareness. Japan was in addition to the major earthquake just received a 7.5 earthquake yesterday. They are really going through a hard time but we have to stand by them. We have to. It's our duty as Americans.

    i hope the people in japan can recover from the horrible disaster and i hope that we can give them what they need even if we are in debt because we're all humans and we all deserve to live a good life. We only have one life and i just can't stand around watching other people being in trouble. My school did something for Haiti when it was in trouble so maybe we can start that again.

    What happend in Japan is a real tragity. I mean, how would you feel if all you owned was disroyed and while this is happening your screaming and runnning for your life? I say we should all be supporting them as much as we would want to be supported during a hard time like this.

    It is so sad what happend in Japan. I feel so bad for them.

    The people in Japan really have had a tough time, many lost homes, friends, family, pets, and a lot more. I can't even imagine what they've been through. I would definitely want to help out with them as much as they want us to help out with them. Japan is in my prayers. 🙂

    the tragedy in japan saddens me and puts me into a lugubrious stage. Just the rumination of that event happening to somewhere close to me or my family is unfathomable. Generosity should be imposed by the US with great amounts of money to the benefit of Japan. God bless all...

    The tragedy in Japan is very devistating to all of us some more than others, reason for this is because they are people who may have lost a loved one and or loved ones from this disaster. What I don't really understand is why are people constantly saying that they can't help when they really can. Take action in your schools and try to do something anything to raise money to help them, because a little bit of help can go a long way in the long run. 🙂
    God bless you Japan

    To all students from Japan I give you my condolences. I am dearly sorry for you losses both family and home wise. Although you guys have lost so much during this disaster, I think you can all say you also gained much. For example, faith. Faith is something that most of you who didn't have even a drop of faith have now gained more than that and it should never be lost. I encourage you all to get back up. Don't give up because not everything was lost . I am sure you all know how important your life is by now because God chose those of you who are alive because he has a purpose for your life. From now on your mission should be to live everyday like it was your last and to make it worth everything you have been through. I sincerely hope you can all recover from this devastating tragedy. You guys are strong and valuable. Your not alone, our father God is with you at all times !(:

    The tragedy that has occurred in Japan is effecting everyone all over the world. The people who are in Japan suffering is unreasonable, and never in a day of my life would i have thought of ever hearing or seeing something like this happen to innocent people. For things to get better in the future, I think they need to have more people on watch for the nuclear power plants. Also, I think that schools around the world should come together and raise money to help support Japan.

    April 27, 2011 at 11:33 am |

    I believe that the tragedy in Japan is a major influence in how we will live our lives today. It changed the views of everybody, and helped a lot of us respect what we have and what we have to live for. It is truly a horrible event, and I can't fathom what they are going through. God bless everybody in Japan, including the ones who have passed away, that are still alive, and those that are missing. My prayers will be with you all.

    I know a lot of clothing companies that have made t-shirts to sell and donate all their profits to the red cross. I also know that Mark Hoppus from Blink-182 sold a lot of his things on ebay and donated all the money he earned to the red cross as well, and many of it went for thousands of dollars. It's nice to see a lot of people help out and hopefully Japan recovers quickly.

    Again in ruin,

    Japan is in need.

    Japan is sadly, once again facing disaster. Only this time, we American's are willing to help. I say we need to give it our all, no matter how unjust we've been to the small nation. They need help, and they deserve it.

    Well, even though I'm not from Japan, I feel so sorry for them.I feel really sorry for the people whose relatives are long-lost or dead. Imagine having an earthquake and then surprise,surprise! You get a wall of water rushing towards you. My dad showed me this video about the tsunami. At earthquake and tsunami time, this guy was turned around, his back to the ocean. Then this wall of water (tsunami) appeared behind his back. He was appeared to taking pictures. Some of his friends were there. They tried to warn him, but he just took pictures. Finally his friends ran. And what happened to that guy? Well... he died.
