Message from Japan

 
 

I have received a message from Sister Takako Frances Takagi, SND, president of our sister school Notre Dame Seishin University in Okayama, Japan, in response to a message I sent her earlier this week.  She reports all is well at Seishin, but appreciates Trinity’s concern and prayers.  Here is part of her message:

“Thank you so much for your kind letter of concern. It is indeed an anxious and uncertain time in Japan. …we have been fortunate enough to escape any ill-effects at all this far to the west of the country, for the time being. … you will know from the tragedy your own country suffered on 9/11, what a fragile web we live in and the sometimes surprising connections which become clear through just such a crisis. However, all of our schools in Japan are secure and without damage. Do keep those suffering especially in your prayers, please; pray, too, for survivors and rescue personnel. We will be stronger praying together. We are so grateful to belong to such a caring family as the Sisters of Notre Dame in times like these and, following the example of our courageous forebears, put our trust in the good God.”

I ask readers to respond to this question:  what is the best way for the Trinity community to respond to the crisis in Japan?  Please offer your comments by clicking on the comment link below, or send email to president@trinitydc.edu

  1. Nobody can help all those who died in Japans disaster or reduce pain of their relatives. That was awful disaster. Nature could be very cruel. However if there will repeats Chernobyl scenario in Japan that will be more awful. I still think that it is very dangerous to build nuclear reactors in seismic regions. It doesn’t matter in Japan or any other place. Politics and economics declare that nuclear energy is the cheapest. However I don’t believe it. There have to be other alternatives to get energy.
