Praying for Japan

This is a column I wrote for The Barrow Journal.  As a former JET participant, I feel a little like the earthquake and tsunami hit my home – or one of them.  Thankfully no one I know was hurt in the disaster, but there were wonderful people affected by it just like the ones I knew and loved.  Click here to read the full column.

And I decided to go dig out a few old photos and scan them.  The photo quality isn’t that great, but you can see me with a couple of my classes.  You can really see the personalities of those kids in these photos.  (Is it possible that they would be in their twenties by now?!)  The last photo is of me and Saki.  Of all the students in my school, she could speak English the best, so we bonded, and I’ll never forget her.
