I want to start off by saying good morning to all of my friends here in the United States, but I must admit, my heart is once again with my friends in Japan after yesterday’s large, 7.3 magnitude earthquake off the east coast of Honshu. Fortunately, there was no major damage from this quake and the tsunami generated by this quake was less than one metre, so no damage occurred from it, but anytime a major earthquake strikes this region, or tsunami alerts go out for this area, it brings back the painful memories of the 2011 Tōhoku earthquake and tsunami which destroyed so much and changed Japan forever. Thankfully, Japan avoided another disaster, and will return to life as normal with yet another reminder of how fragile life is and how powerful Mother Nature is.
In other news, I would like to wish a very “Happy Birthday” to former First Lady, former Secretary of State, and future Madam President Hillary Clinton.
I hope you all have a fantastic weekend, be safe, be kind and do good.
