tonight maybe we're gonna run dreaming of the Osaka sun dreaming of when the morning comes
It's almost funny to me how everything seems so far, yet so close. After spending a whole year just getting to know people from all over the world, it is as if the world shrunk. Japan is so much closer than we think. They're all doing it. The scientists, the massmedia, the people - in Norway, in the US, in Brazil. They worry; what if the radiation reaches us?
It's been a tough week. And my prayers and thoughts and best wishes go to Japan, hoping for a quick recovery.
I told the 11th graders yesterday what you gain from a year abroad; and it's not only maturing and learning a new language and meeting new people and getting better at adjusting. It is also worrying, and now especially for those in Japan.
It's been a tough week, and let's just leave it at that.
