Photo’s: Silent Witnesses To Japan’s Devastation

On the site of photographs are published, silent witnesses to Japan’s devastation.

My heart cries out for the victims and the family and friends of the ones who fell. And to the ones still fighting to find survivors. The brave men who are trying to secure the nuclear plants.

My thoughts and prayers go out to other victims as well, whether by violence or nature’s disasters.

May they find peace.

I chose the song ‘That I Would Be Good’, because I absolutely love the lyrics. To be loved and cherished, no matter what. To feel safe and cared for, no matter what. That it is OK to be YOU. Please listen to:

That I Would Be Good:

That I would be good, even if I did nothing
That I would be good, even if I got the thumbs down
That I would be good, if I got and stayed sick
That I would be good, even if I gained ten pounds

That I would be fine, even if I went bankrupt
That I would be good, if I lost my hair and my youth
That I would be great, if I was no longer queen
That I would be grand, if I was not all knowing

That I would be loved, even when I numbed myself
That I would be good, even when I am overwhelmed
That I would be loved, even when I was fuming
That I would be good, even if I was clingy

That I would be good, even if I lost sanity
That I would be good, whether with or without you
