In communities around the world, individuals are responding with support for the Japanese people. In the wake of the earthquake and tsunami on March 11, thousands of Japanese citizens are dead or missing and tens of thousands lack food, shelter and water. Ongoing concerns with nuclear power plants and the release of radiation are adding to the devastation. Our human interconnectedness makes this tragedy hit close to home.
