I came up with this idea yesterday in light of a few things that I saw on Deviant Art.

As you all know, Japan was hit with a massive 8.9 magnitude earthquake and as a result it created a 30 foot Tsunami that wiped out the town of Sendai and many others in the Miyagi Prefecture. Over 3000 people have died and in one town alone 10,000 are still unaccounted for.

What I have in mind, and yes it involved all of you, is to create a book full of everyone's thoughts and feelings about the disaster in Japan. You can include pictures if you'd like just please post them with your letter! Once the book is complete, I will post each page on here so you can see the result before I send it to the Japanese Ambassador Ichiro Fujisaki in Washington DC at the Japanese Embassy.

This is at the most all we can do to show that people are constantly thinking about the well being of the people that are caught up in this disaster.

Feel free to start posting your letters today. The deadline to get your letters in is by April 30th 2011.

Note: It is perfectly okay to submit your letter in English, since being an Embassy established in the USA, English is pretty much a requirement smile.gif

At the end of your letter, please if you can (optional), just post your name (NO LAST NAME) your age, and what country you're from.

Together we can show that people from all over the world can come together to give hope to people facing hard times.

When you're letter is ready, please post it here in the forum. DO NOT post anything other than what you want to have put in the letter collection. If you have any questions, please send me, ScarMySoul a PM. Thanks! smile.gif


This is the Cover. smile.gif

Do we just post the letter as a reply on this thread?

Yes, just post your letter here. I will combine them together as I receive them here.

NOTE: If there are any more questions, please send them by PM to ScarMySoul. Thanks smile.gif

I hope this is okay...>< I hope it's okay that I addressed it to the whole of Japan; I can't help but think that they're all affected by it, albeit not all of them directly.


To the people of Japan,

For us, the whole situation still seems very surreal, but for the people of Japan it is a damning reality.

I, for one, could never imagine the terror you must feel. Despite this, amidst the horror, there are vast wells of hope and strength that everyone is drawing from. Even through the storm, you are keeping calm and carrying on. And I can assure you that across the world, everyone's hearts are swelling with admiration at your bravery --and the hearts of the people of Japan should definitely be brimming with pride.

You are dealing with a disaster of such magnitude in such a brilliant and exemplary manner, which makes me respect Japan as a country even more. It shows that even at the worst of times, you are still standing as one and fighting together as the strong, resilient nation that you are.

My thoughts and heart are with the whole of Japan in this dark time; and you are certainly not walking alone. Don't give up!

Yours faithfully,
Nicole ( Aged 19)


I may update this post with an picture at a later date if I get the time to do one. I'll definitely try! (And that's a lovely cover, Scar! happy.gif)

ETA: Thanks for the kind words!! Also, you're letter has been added and I changed some spellings for you (only two lol) ~Scar

ETA 2: Ah, okay, thank you! I see the mistakes now that I'm looking back on it. Sorry about that! I wrote this at 4 in the morning. wacko.gif But even so, they were glaringly obvious! *headdesk* Fail. laugh.gif

ETA 3: Its no worries, I fixed it. No ones perfect. smile.gif ~Scar
