She held her breath
Wondering if she would survive
Holding on as the world shook
And the plants fell.
The sky sounded like it came down.
As dust fell from ceiling tiles.
When the world gathered itself
And caught its breath
The only thing she could ask now...
“Was that another big truck?”
I was honored to host exchange students, who my daughter now
considers her best friends, from Japan. Two of our three girls are safe,
but one is still missing, one of the over 18,00 missing and presumed dead.
Japan, our hearts are with you.
