The recent chain of disasters in Japan have awakened many–awakened us to the frailty of our own existence–awakened us to our own selfish wants when others are so desperately in need.
In an effort to show our concern and love for our brothers and sisters in Japan, my students decided to do a little project. They chose first to make a poster. Something that could include a “part” of them–their hands and words. Then they wanted to connect with the people of Japan. They chose origami birds. They made pelicans. In Klamath, our city bird is the pelican–a most appropriate connection. When all was said and done, we made this video. If you know anybody, any schools, any child in Japan, please share this with them.
Our hearts yearn for your recovery. Your unity and love as a country, as one family, is an example to us all. We are praying for you, our dear friends in Japan.
