Thank You for Supporting for Japan - Japan Earthquake

Thank You for Supporting for Japan - Japan Earthquake

After the earthquake I received many messages to express condolences and to support Japan and the Japanese people. I haven't been able to respond to all of them in person, but I would like to say thank you so much from my bottom of my heart. It is very nice to know that people from all over the world are praying for Japan. I really wish the people who are suffering could hear the prayers.

On Sunday I volunteered for an Earthquake Relief Benefit Concert that my friend, who is a musician, organized. There too, I was very moved by the great support and generosity. It made me think that I would like to do the same thing when a disaster happens somewhere else in the world, not just my home country. I hope all the donations get to the people who are in need as soon as possible.

Japanese Translation

日本への支援に感謝

日本での地震の後、日本と日本人を支援するたくさんのメッセージをいただきました。それらのメッセージにひとつひとつ返事を書くことはできずにいますが、この場をお借りして、皆さんに心のそこから感謝の気持ちを述べたいと思います。世界中の人たちが日本のために、祈ってくださっていると知ることは、とても心強いことです。今現在苦しんでいる日本の人々にも、この祈りが届くとどんなによいだろうと思います。

日曜日に、ミュージシャンである友達が主催した地震救援コンサートのお手伝いをしました。そこでも、多くの人々の支援と寛大さにとても心を動かされました。自国のためだけではなく、世界のどこかで災害があったとき、私もぜひ同じ行動を起こせるようにしたいとつくづく思わされました。すべての義援金が、困っておられる方々に少しでも早く届けられることを願ってやみません。
