Sympathy From Overseas

Recommended Posts

I subscribe to a couple of newsletters out of Japan. Here's a paragraph from one I got today:

--:--

All of Japan is watching the damage caused by Hurricane Katrina in horror.

Located along the Pacific Ring of Fire, Japan is no stranger to disasters -- my

mother came to visit us from the U.S. once, and she managed to experience

typhoons, earthquakes and a nearby volcanic eruption during the short time she

was here. However, we've never seen anything on the scale of the current

tragedy, ever. All of us pray for the safety of everyone affected by these

terrible, terrible events.

I think it is very good that Japan feels that way for us and it is quite touching. So far the only countries I have heard about helping us is Japan and Britain.

There was a list in the Chronicle yesterday. Most interesting Venezuela donating 100 MILLION barrels of gasoline. Wonder how that will be distributed? Also their oil co. Citgo (?) gave 1 mill. dollars.

Today i have heard of a bunch of countries wanting to help, and it is very generous of them. I had figured others were helping, I just didn't want to name off countries because I wasn't quite sure which ones are helping.
