Tonight our community is gathering to do something — small, but still something — to help those in Japan. After the earthquake in Haiti, we did a similar thing. There was a community spaghetti dinner and the money raised went to Haiti. I remember that dinner because it brought such a cross-section of the community together. This can be a fractious place at times, so I hope this will do a little good for us as well as a little good for those across the water. As a friend said the other evening, the one thing we all have in common is that we all want to be here. Very few people are forced to live in Tofino.
I found this article from NPR where photojournalists have posted photos of Japan and Haiti side-by-side. Picturing the Unimaginable indeed.
Hope to see you tonight.
