Light up for Japan

To show solidarity with Japan as it faces the monumental ordeal of earthquakes/tsunami/nuclear radiation, 10 iconic towers in 7 different countries are lit up to show support and encouragement to Japan's relief effort. Starting from April 4 Monday at sunset, these skyscrapers are illuminated in the midst of the city's skyline in red and white, the color of Japan's national flag. Participating cities are hoping that the prominent visual spectacle would remind their residents of the disaster and encourage donation to the relief fund. Sorry I cannot find the red and white illuminations for some of the towers. I will post more once I find the pictures, please add your imagination @@

Dear Jaime and Bae sisters:

Greetings when cherry blossoms are in bloom presaging Spring waltzes and summer tales.
We will wear red and white illuminations on our hearts for the Japanese people, too.
The triple tragedy of earthquake, tsunami and nuclear radiation has also affected the global economy and environment.
Recession, inflation, risks of government shutdown!

Meaning the best is yet to come.

Dear josephine,

Nice to hear from you again. Yes, you're right. The world economy will gradually feel the effect of this disaster. I hope the radiation will be contained soon so the adverse effect is minimized.

Hope spring will give us new hope! love .... jaime
