Let Us Pray For Japan

Yesterday was supposed to be a normal working day for us. A Friday, so it wasn't that busy at all. We were all performing our tasks, the daily routine until one of our officemates told us there was an earthquake in Japan and so our Consultants started running out of their office building. We were sending them messages and we weren't getting responses. We tried calling the people we needed to call but lines aren't working. We realized it was serious. We started going online just to find out that an 8.9 magnitude earthquake struck Japan! We stopped working because we were worried. It wasn't the time to work. It was the time to pray and sympathize on the people who might be badly affected because of what happened. We received messages from our Consultants to cancel their meetings because of the earthquake and so we did. Then news about Tsunami came in. And so, when I got home, I learned that there were also freakin' tsunami alerts for countries and islands in the Pacific. Tsunami took place in Japan and then later today, Fukushima No. 1 exploded and then there were several after shocks taking place too...

We are working under the Japanese market and honestly, it's hard to work when you know that people are not ok in that area. I am extending my prayers to each and every Japanese, to my workmates, clients and candidates... I am praying for your safety. I hope that you and your families are all ok.
