The imagery of the devastation in Japan leaves me breathless.
While what we can do to help the people of Japan -- most especially the school children in Sendai -- will pale relative to the degree of the trauma, we need to do something.
We have three school days remaining before the break. I'd like to invite any suggestion for avenues we can use to be helpful, and simultaneously teach our own children about the ethics of empathy and responsible social action.
Please take a moment to email me with suggestions so that, when we return from the break, we can make a concerted, meaningful, focused effort.
