Sending Prayers to All Being Affecting by The Tsunami


Our thoughts and prayers are with all those
who are being affected by the
tremendous devastation
and
heartache
of the Tsunami 2011.

We are with you and yours, holding you closely
to our bosom in support, prayer and
great hope today and always.
May The Creator give you what is need to get through
these uncertain times
and
HOPE that will sustain you
in the days, months and years ahead.

Japan, our thoughts are with you this morning as we read that:TAGAJO, Japan –
"The death toll in Japan's earthquake and tsunami will likely exceed 10,000 in one state alone, an official said Sunday, as millions of survivors were left without drinking water, electricity and proper food along the pulverized northeastern coast.

Although the government doubled the number of soldiers deployed in the aid effort to 100,000, it seemed overwhelmed by what's turning out to be a triple disaster: Friday's quake and tsunami damaged two nuclear reactors at a power plant on the coast, and at least one of them appeared to be going through a partial meltdown, raising fears of a radiation leak."

AND
The U.S.A. has already deployed "Disaster Teams"
to the areas affected and infected by the
tragedies that are affected!
That's how the Red/White/and Blue
is.
We are a Nation that
STANDS in times of
crisis.
We Respond in the face of threat
to
those in need.

And this traumatic event is not exception
even
during times of tremendous economic strain,
even
during times
when
our
First Americans living
in South Dakota
and
known to be the poorest population
in the country
and
have nothing
have not ever been attended to by anyone
have the highest suicide rate in the world
highest unemployment rate in the world
and
highest alcoholism rate in the world
and
highest poor housing in the world
Go unnoticed by everyone in the world.

BUT
this Tsunami
is indeed something sudden, unexpected
and
WE NEED TO RESPOND,
IT HAD TO BE QUICKLY
AND
WE ARE AMERICANS
AND
WE ARE GOOD, VERY VERY GOOD
AT
FIRST RESPONSE TEAMS
IT IS WHO AND WHAT WE ARE.

THANK YOU FIRST RESPONDERS
FOR ALL THAT YOU ARE DOING RIGHT NOW
FOR THOSE WHOSE LIVES ARE SHATTERED AND FRAGILE.

The trauma, the grief and horrors that are being experienced in the areas affected will be intense for a long time.

There will also be
"vicarious trauma" and "secondary traumatic stress",
experienced by those all around the world that sit and watch it on the television hour after hour; along with those who do not know if friends and relatives are alright, if they are safe, if they are alive.

It may be necessary to limit your exposure to the amount of time you spend watching the news or reading about this on. The constant bombardment of exposure to the events and updates may be too much.
You may find you need a respite from it.
YOU remember the impact of watching scenes
of 9/11 being played out on the television
and
how it made you feel?
The "perceived threat" and feelings as though you "could not breathe" and anxiety that came over you after the hours of watching updates and replays of those planes hitting the buildings?
That was "vicarious trauma" being lived by watching the real trauma over and over again.
There becomes a point and time that it affects you deeply; it is then that you would benefit
by limiting or cutting out the exposure
for a while.

Just keeping it real for you.

I cannot imagine what or how the people of Japan
are coping; how relatives here are struggling with the
"not knowing"
issues that must be filling their senses.
Now they must also cope with the idea
of "nuclear" issues as well.
We must also be mindful of the other countries under
"threat",
of
California
of
those in
Hawaii
there is many to surround with heartfelt thoughts
prayers, energy, faith, determination,
and
HOPE
Today.

So, as we step in to this day,
may we step with an attitude of grace
of
HOPE and understanding for what we hard to grasp
or understand.
Together let's put our
Universal Energies together
bundle them in a red cloth of prayer
and
send them to
ALL
THAT ARE IN NEED.
There are so very many who need us,
here and abroad, from humans; to the
four-leggeds, the winged ones, the swimmers, the land critters too, the plants, and
all living things.
We Stand With YOU all.
And so,
as far as the Quake and following Tsunami
and the days, months, years ahead...
I leave you with a quote from
Maya Angelou:
"You may shoot me with your words, you may cut me with your eyes, you may kill me with your hatefulness, but still, like air, I'll rise!"

The fire is burning Brightly, the embers are hot,
with prayers and thoughts to all,
Will you join me and light a candle for those
who are affected by the
Tragedy of the Tsunami
today and tonight?
Thank you first responders for answering the call
and
also Thank you Mr President for responding on our
behalf to those who have been devastated
and
to our service animals
and
Our Military
and
The American Red Cross

and
To all in the Prayer bowl,
we are with you as always, we are a powerful group of Warriors on this page.

I also ask that you hold cuz Angie up as she continues to recover from abdominal surgery and the pain that follows after major surgery.
Once again we need your thoughts, strength and prayers for our warrior out in CO, EE who has been having a difficult time with health, may you be well again soon.

And
 for Martha Deaver whose beloved son died recently, please accept our condolences and remember,
"there is no distance" he is right there, with you always
with each heartbeat.
And
For
The Class of
Dublin High School
in Southwest Virginia
who is grieving on of their fellow class mates
(they celebrated their 50th reunions last year)
This gentleman was loved by all, and recently
died secondary to Cancer
after fighting the battle with dignity and class!
He will be missed by all.
STOMP

I am sure you could not know just how many people read your posts, as quoted by the last comment of the day yesterday. A fine & true statement on this SUNday, one hour short of time. Japan and the world needs our prayers and thoughts. Warriors are here, sending all positive energy to those in need. I feel blessed and fortunate this SUNday in Florida.
Will take your advice & give the news bombardment a break. My head & heart can just take so much. FIRM ice cream, here......

Indeed so very heartbreaking to see the devastation in Japan....one wonders why it takes a disaster of this magnitude to remind us that we are all human beings, with lives, hopes and dreams...regardless of where we live, what we look like, and what we believe. May the Great Goddess gather those effected in her loving arms and grant them solace...
