“…This was a momentous occasion. I cannot thank you enough for participating in this moment of Silence.
Thank you so much. Nothing to can replace this feeling I have for Japan and the motivation I have to move forward and continue our support in Tohoku. I especially thank the people who are up to their knees in mud and trash everyday during the clean up operations in the north. You guys are the best! ”
