Helping hands help many
We in America watch the destruction in Japan.
Most wondering what it would be like to go through that-
Others just sitting back not wanting to help.
How can people be that way?
I want you to imagine that you are in their shoes-
Just getting off work or school when the ground begins to shake-
You are used to this, but then you find out big waves are coming to sweep you up-
Destroying the life that you were accustomed to.
Imagine your loved ones being swallowed up into the waves-
Screaming your name to help them-
Would you just stand there and let that happen,
Or would you get up and help?
Many families are going through many losses today.
Grieving to have their family back-
Losing everything that they have worked so hard to have.
Will you get up and help them?
Japan residents need our help.
They can’t do it alone.
Please be generous and help in any way you can.
Wouldn’t you want them to help you?
