Japan, Tragedy, and Perspective

Hi guys,

It’s been a long 24 hours. I wanted to just take a moment and send good thoughts and vibes to the people of Japan. We’ve been inundated with images of tragedy and loss, following the quake and tsunami that hit the island country. People here in California were stressed about the ripple effect of the tsunami, since we share the Pacific Ocean with Japan. But there was no real problem here. A few waves, and a little bit of damage… but nothing major.

Of course, this site is dedicated to all things makeup… but that doesn’t mean that we’re immune to the realities of world events.

I learned today that the southern California city of  Riverside is the ‘sister city’ to the city of Sendai in Japan. Sendai was one of the hardest hit areas, and many of the residents in Riverside and Little Tokyo are worried.

If it’s not too much trouble, I’d love it if you guys could just send a positive thought, or prayer, or wish their way. You may not believe it, but it might make all the difference in the world.

Thank you so much.

    I have been praying for the people of Japan as well as for the rest of all the countries situated near it. I hope no other country suffers what Japan has gone through. I also hope the people of Japan and their government will be able to overcome this tragedy.
