Default Japanese Earthquake

Japan has been devastated by one of the biggest earthquakes in the whole world. It's still happening as I'm typing. The after shocks are still on, and the tsunami destroyed whole cities. Nothing is left but rubble.

The tsunami ripples are still coming our way. A 25 year old man was killed in California because of this wave. It first hit Japan, and the first American State was Hawaii, where my aunt lives. I hope she's okay, and if she's not... I don't want to think about it. I just think everyone who is going through this needs support. And you can give it to them.

It makes me cry...this tragedy is so terrible that I think that 2012 might actually happen.
