"My family and I visited Japan October 2009 and the memory of that visit has remained vivid in our minds. Japan and it's people is beautiful. It is with a heavy heart that I view the destruction and havoc wrought by the earthquake and tsunami on this beautiful country. With the strength of character and resilience of the Japanese people, i have no doubt that the country will bounce back from this tragedy. Still and all, we join the whole world in collective prayer for Japan and it's people. May we all be spared from further destruction---lanibi, Baguio City,Philippines"
