I posted this as a note on facebook… but I feel like it should be posted hear as well. I am really shocked by the level of… apathetic… comments that some are posting on facebook. Please remember that while we may not agree with some things the government allows to happen, the Japanese people did not deserve to lose homes, family, friends, and lives. I know the slaughter of Cetaceans irritates us and we want to see it stopped (it needs to be stopped)… but right now Japan needs our support!
I‘d just like to say… if the trolls families were in the middle of this disaster they would be doing everything that they could to get them home… they wouldn’t say “well you survived, but good luck fighting the radiation!” Bottom line is, once we get our friends out of there, more resources can go to those who lost their homes!
I am astounded at some of the posts that have been made, against the Japanese people. I do not care what views people have on the slaughter of cetaceans, in this moment, that needs to be put aside until it is time to rebuild Otsuchi, hopefully with a dolphin touring idea in mind rather than a new butcher house.
The disaster in Japan is horrific! Please do not be posting elsewhere that they deserved this… thousands of people are unfound… families have been ripped apart… and there are people suffering everywhere.
I am very lucky that my dad and our friends survived! They are lucky, and they know that. 🙂
Everyone who has lost their families and their homes in Japan are in our prayers and help is there to assist them as best they can.
Please help the people of Otsuchi!
The Ft Bragg Sister City to Otsuchi has a collection fund for their friends and donations can be sent to them to directly. There are many humanitarian aid agencies collecting for Japan but if you wish to do something uniquely personal to our crew who witnessed this destruction you can do so here…
