Lowell Sheppard

Love Bruggeman . .. grieving is the new norm in Japan where I live . . .a prevailing sadness for which there is no easy resolution ......

The sad news is:
1. Level 9 Earthquake
2. Devastating Tsunami along an extensive coastline
3. Fukushimi and Chernobyl now forever linked. The Result . . . Japan now has the equivalent of a very large and population intensive leper colony .....
4. State of Japanese Economy described officially as `severe`

...If one is looking for a silver lining, I guess this is an opportunity for an entire nation to redefine itself by drawing on its strengths to build a different kind of future. My bifocal prayer is: 1. God help those whose lives have been so terribly effected by the crises and 2: May we turn as a people to sustainable energy sources that are kind to people and the planet. AMEN

My question though .... where is the prophet in all of this?

Jonny Sorry for digression from Bruggeman, but i have had very little dialogue with people outside Japan and felt the impulse to place my grief someplace and you always provide a safe place . . .

Exhausted and sad in Japan


Lowell, very touched by your words. Praying for you and Kande and all those who are grieving in Japan.


lowell thanks for taking the time to write - i can't begin to imagine the weight of sadness.
