As the news reports and pictures keep coming in on this tragedy I continue to think about many of the wonderful people I came to know and places and things I got to see when I was an exchange student in Japan in the 80's.
I was a student in Utsunomiya, a city a couple of hours north of Tokyo and in the center of the island. I have not been able to find any reports on that city except for some gas shortages, so I guess that they were spared. I did not keep in touch with the friends that I made during that time. Over the years I have written but letters that I sent have been returned. I still consider that time and those people to be so important in my life. I learned so much living there. It was an amazing experience.
Please keep Japan in your thoughts and prayers.
