Having lived and worked in Hiroshima, Japan for ten years, my heart goes out to all the Japanese that have been affected by the tragic events of Friday, March 11th. As Hiroshima is located quite a ways from the Sendai region where the earthquake and tsunami took place, all of my friends are OK. However, as Athletic Director at the Hiroshima International School from 2002-2007, I brought a number of students up to the Sendai International School for sports exchange. Thousands of people from the town of Sendai are missing and unaccounted for. My thoughts go out to the families who are desperately searching for loved ones. Tragic events such as this do indeed make you realize that life is precious. As a good friend in Japan told me today, "Hug your loved ones and pray for the best always."
