This is a disaster for which there are no words. But process it--and help--we must. Please use the comments on this post as a space to share links to writing, links to organizations in need of donations, and words for our fellow She Writers based in Japan.
For starters, please check out this post by She Writer Marie Cooper, "Hearts with the Japanese". Marie mentions Sachiko, a blogger from Japan with family there, who is using her blog Tea Rose Home to implore the public to help in whatever way they can. As Marie writes, "Financial contributions to reputable organizations seem to be the most efficient method of assisting. Even donations as little as $10 are welcome." Read Marie's post for links to charities organizing relief efforts, or see the list below.
She Writer Hollye Dexter has posted a beautiful "Prayer for Japan".
And New York Times writer Marie Mutsuki Mockett wrote a heartwrenching piece yesterday, "Memories Washed Away."
Japan, our prayers are with you.
