My Prayers Go Out To The Japanese People

What happened to Japan today was horrible. I spent 12 of my 24 years in the Navy either stationed or home-ported in Japan. It’s an amazing place. Despite its size (it’s smaller than the State of California) and lack of natural resources, it rose out of the destructive aftermath of WWII and rebuilt itself into one of the most economically powerful and influential countries in the world. My prayers go out to the Japanese and I wish them a speedy recovery. I remember what my Japanese friends said so many times when I was challenged with something difficult… Ganbate ne! You can do it!
