In Japan Disaster on March 11, 2011 at 9:49 pm

The 8.9 earthquake in Japan has been described as one of the biggest, if not the biggest, in modern Japan.  This disaster will no doubt leave irreparable scars and horrid memories in the minds of many, including children and youth who will live on with such burdens.

When the relief operations end and reconstruction starts, many children and youth will themselves in temporary schools with possibly different classmates and teachers.  Some may also find themselves staying with family or others in cities away from their destroyed cities.   All will be told to try to study but the reality of the devastation will be hard to ignore.

How can you help?  Send a message to support and encouragement in English and Hope Letters will translate it into Japanese.

Hope Letters will find ways to deliver the messages to local schools and school boards.  The messages may be posted electronically if that is available, placed as a hardcopy journal or broadcasted via local news agencies.

  14. Dear Japan,

    Though an ocean may seperate my nation and yours, please know that there are people who worry, who care, and most importantly, who pray for the safety and well being of all of your people.



  15. Dear sweet innocent students,

    My family’s hearts are breaking for you. I am a mom, with a 12-year old daughter and 6-year old son. My husband and I were up late one night and saw the tsunami pictures live in Japan. We sat there, stunned, in disbelief and horror. I wanted to write this to you to let you know that people who are thousands of miles away from you, people you will never ever know or meet, care about you and want to help. We can only imagine how difficult this time must be for you. As soon as my husband and I receive our paycheck this week, we will donate to the Red Cross specifically to help with the relief efforts, and so they can give you whatever you need. It is a very small gesture, but it is what we can do, and I believe so many other people will do the same.

    Please keep your hope going. Keep those smiles going. Be kind to one another, especially your family. You need each other during this difficult time. We wish you the best and want to see everything get restored as soon as possible. We are praying for you.

    God Bless,




  31. Dear Japan,

    I’m praying for each and every one of you every single day. Please continue to stay strong and hopeful. There is always light at the end of every dark tunnel. Do not lose your spirits. I know what earthquakes feel like because like your country the western coast of my country sits close to a subduction zone and on several fault lines as well. I may not know how scary a tsunami is but I know how scary earthquakes are and the damage that they do to people psychologically for many weeks and months after the ground stops shaking. I know that from now on every single one of you is going to be forever changed, but don’t let this tragedy forever ruin you. You have the help of the world who are ready to assist you in any way and a lot of people all over the world who are praying for each and every one of you right now. Keep your heads up! Buildings may crash and loved ones may perish and no matter how hard and how long the journey to a full recovery is hope will always prevail.

    Always in my heart and prayers;

  32. Don’t worry Japan, almost every country is contributing to help your country recover. Just remember, it’s not the end of the world. Everything that is wrecked can be fixed; not to say that it will be the same, but will get by. be strong Japan,because it’s never the end for an awesome country like you.

    Lots of hope, love and dreams,



  33. Dearest brothers and sisters in Japan,

    What happened to you guys is bad but always know that the good Lord is with you. You are deeply thought of at times like this and always in our prayers. May God grant you strength to survive this tragic disaster. We love you all and we are all in this together. Don’t ever give up, you are not alone.

    With love
    Concerned teen in South Africa.

  59. Hello. A GREAT BIG, tight, longggg hug to each and every one of you. You are never alone. Others and God always loves you. Some times bad things happen and we don’t always know why but I believe that some day we will understand. Please take care of yourselves too so you can be of more help to others. I believe that there are only two things that God would like us to do and that is to “Love Him” and “Do Good” by helping others. I am sending “light and love and healing energy” to you all. It is my belief that we are eternal spirits living a human life here on earth to learn. Therefore we really are okay even in disasters, and even if we don’t understand everything here on earth…one day we will. It seems though that we learn more during bad/difficult times and we also turn towards God. Cry out to Him. He loves you always. I believe that all those who love God go Home/the Other Side/Heaven to God and that we all will be reunitied. I hope that my faith helps you as well. I imagine it is extremely difficult to believe this when faced with the devestation and loss that you encounter, please keep the faith, be strong and take things one step at a time. You all are in my thoughts and prayers. I care about you all. I love you all. BIG, tight, longgggggg hugs, me Julie W., in Wisconsin, U.S.

  60. To all of the children in Japan my thoughts and prayers for and your families. I am praying that soon your days will get better.

Remember: the Sun will always rise again.

    Lots of love

    ロブ シドニーより

  89. Dear children, I would like to share with you the words of a gentle and good man by the name of Fred Rogers. The words have brought me comfort, and I hope they will give you some comfort, too.

    “When I was a boy and I would see scary things in the news, my mother would say to me, ‘Look for the helpers. You will always find people who are helping.’ To this day, especially in times of disaster, I remember my mother’s words, and I am always comforted by realizing that there are still so many helpers – so many caring people in this world.”

    「私がまだ少年で怖いものをニュースでみた時、特に惨事が起こったとき私は母の言葉を思い出す。私の母はこう言いました 救助にあたる人を見なさい、誰かが救助をしている。 そして私はいつも慰められ、まだたくさんの救助にあたる人がいるのだと気づかされるーたくさんの思いやりのある人が世界中にいるのだ。」

  90. Dear People of Japan,

    I wish I was there to give you a hug. You are so strong and so brave and please know I am thinking about you. I once heard Japan compared to a cherry blossom,because it was so fragile and vulnerable to Mother Nature.I think recent events have proven that very true. Please know that help is on the way, and even though what has happened the past couple days has been very hard, you are so strong and the cherry blossom will bloom again.


  91. We hope and pray that you survive this tragic event. You will get through this . Help is on the way. Be strong and hold on.

    I am a University student from Phoenix, Arizona, USA. I visited Japan in 2007 and fell in love with your culture and your food! My brother is living in Tokyo right now and was there when the earthquake happened.
    I feel so sad that something so terrible could happen to such a wonderful and welcoming people. I think about you all everyday and night, hoping that relief and help will come quickly. I know that with each passing day it will become a little bit easier and the uncertainty will pass. I sincerely hope that all in your families are safe and healthy. I know that this note isn’t much, but I wanted to send you my love and warm thoughts. Please take care and know that someone in the USA deeply cares about you all and believes in your potential to succeed in all your endeavors!

  117. To the children of Japan
    It’s ok to be frightened and it’s ok to cry. Remember to talk about how you feel. Remember that courage is the friend of fear. And while all this craziness is going on, and maybe there is no school–you can still be learning. You can be helpful. You can be kind. You can take care of small things. You are important in the recovery from all the devastation. Focus on every little thing that is good. My hope is that each day gets better. You are held in my thoughts, my heart and my prayers. Be safe, be well and be free from all danger and fear.

  118. I am so sorry about what happened to all of you. I know you can’t go to school and learn, and that must be very hard. I know this note doesn’t make all the bad things that happened go away but just know deep in your hearts that someone is praying for you. I’ve been praying for you and hoping that you can all get through this, it’s okay to cry. Be strong and hold your heads up, I know its seems like it will never get better but it will. All you need to do is hope.


  119. Dear Japan,
    You are an awesome country. I hope you are okay. I hope that it is peaceful now. I hope you will be fine. I will help as much as I can. Stay strong. You have been very brave.

We are sending financial support and our hearts and thoughts are with you as well! Please don’t be frightened and know that as days pass, help will come to make your lives better.
    Here is a big hug from your American friend!



  155. Dear Japanese Students,
    I used to teach children in Japan and I have been teaching Japanese kids for years in a small country in Europe and because I have always admired how disciplined and well organised you are I KNOW you will get through all this although it will not be easy.In those moments when you really feel depressed or feel devastated try to think of those young victims to whom the earthquake but especially the tsunami gave zero chance of life.Your lives were not taken away,try to bear this in mind and I am sure you will feel a bit better if you think of this.
    MY DEEPEST RESPECT for the brave Japanese.From “Melinda sensei”…..

  156. Dear Ones,

    Words cannot express how sorry the world is for you and your families, that you should have to endure this disaster. Be brave. Use this disastrous event to bind your families and friends closer, your communities tighter, and the world together. There are so many people around the world thinking of you right now, and wanting to hug you and tell you everything will be all right. It may seem now that the world is upside down, and the world is right now, but be patient, be calm, we will find a way to put it right. Keep calm and carry on, try to find a way to keep busy, try to find a way to let us know how to help. We are thinking of you.

    ~Lauren; Washington DC

  157. Dear Children and Youth of Japan,

    Times is rough right now but keep your heads up. You WILL get through it. Remember that you are not in it alone. People of all nations are sending help. We care and we are thinking of you, all of you. Be Brave!

    Pearl Leung

  158. Dear Students of Japan,

    As you live through this horrific disaster, know that people all over the world stand with you. It will take a long time to fix the things that can be fixed, and of course, a longer time to heal from the things that can’t be fixed – like loved ones lost, or a home or town that is no longer there.

    All around the world we have been admiring how brave and strong and caring the Japanese people are for each other. Please continue to do that for each other, but also remember to be as kind to yourself as you are to your family, friends, and neighbors. Don’t feel guilty for feeling strong feelings like anger, sadness, or even if you just get tired of those feelings and wish to be happy or laugh for a little bit. All these feelings are normal and I felt them too when I lived through a disaster.

    A few generations ago, your country was devastated by war, but rebuilt to become one of the strongest, most advanced, and most admired countries in the whole world. You are now living the story of how your generation will do the same. You are the ones who will grow up to rebuild Japan. Keep hope alive, and remember that it may take a long long time to rebuild your life. It won’t be the same, but one day it will be good again, and you will be even stronger than before.

    With my best wishes,
    Elizabeth from New Jersey, United States

  174. Dear, children of Japan
    I hope you chilren get better and get some help. I can not imagine that my age, 11, could be in bunkers or stuck in buildings. I live in Vancouver, British Columbia in Canada. I go to West Point Grey Academy. We’ve been trying to write and give you help. This is the worst tragedy ever to happen in Japan. If I could, I would go back in time and warn you sooner that there is going to be an earthquake. I hope there is no more explosions at the power plant. I know help will come. Just hang on.

    From Ari


    Dear,Children of Japan
    Your country has suffered a great deal. We feel for your pain and this disaster makes us appreciate how lucky we are to be safe in Vancouver. I’m sure kids that are our age are suffering too. We can’t imagine us 11 year olds being in a situation like you are. Although times may be tough, you must move forward. Sometimes hope may seem like it’s not there but it is. It is always there, though tiny, it will grow.
    Best Wishes,

    Dear children of Japan,
    We are extremely sorry about what has happened recently in your country. Everyone in the world is shocked that a disaster like that could ever occur, and what it would be like for people in Vancouver if it happened to us. At the ages of 11, we would be extremely scared and you are being very courageous for coping with this. We hope that there is still hope in you because help is on the way. We wish you the best and you are always in our hearts.

  211. To everyone in Japan. You are an amazing country. I have loved everything about you, from food to music to culture and language, foe as long as I can remember. The Japanese are one of the most amazing people in the world and if there is one country that can pick themselves up from a distaster like this, it’s you. Not a day foes by that I am not checking the news or thinking about all of you. I even have family that is living there now. I wish to visit someday and I wish I could be there to help but I lack the training. To all those helping out, thank you and you are a god send. To the children, just remember that you are the future. You can help bring japan back. Never give up hope and just keep trying. I wish I could talk with people there, wether by phone or email, to let them know that they will be alright. Much love from Tacoma, Washington, US. I am 24 years old.


  212. Lots of love and prayers to all the students in Japan. I just sent some support to you through Red Cross and hope you know that there are people all around the world that care about you and are sending help.

  222. Stay strong and don’t lose hope. Everyone around the world is thinking about you. You are amazing and will get through this crisis in time. x

  223. Dear Japan student,
    I’m sorry that this masquer had to happen to you. and it must be hard for you to have to go to temporary schools and live with relatives. but no one wants you guys to feel left all alone so thats why us students of South Whidbey Middle School are writing to you guys through this. and all we want for you is to feel happy and to never give up HOPE. 🙂 because hope is the best thing for us to never give up on. because when i lost my best friend who was a dog, i never gave up hope that he was no longer in pain, and he was happy in a better place. and when you’re cities and homes are rebuilt you’ll remember all those people that gave you HOPE. so all of you kids, older and younger people never give up in HOPE, just hold you’re head up high and you’re heart full of happiness and hope. but i can’t imagine what you must be going through but i know one thing for sure. things will get much much better for in later in life. because once i lost someone for a very long time and it was hard for me. but then as i got a little older i knew why that person stayed away. it was to protect me. and thats why you were taken away from you’re schools and old homes. it was for you’re protection. so remember to never forget about HOPE and happiness. keep you’re heart light from sadness and you’re brain heavy with good thoughts.

    I hope that in this disaster you can be able to persevere and never loose hope. I hope that this scripture can give you inspiration! “I sought the Lord, and he heard me, and delivered me from all my fears.” (Psalm 34:4). I pray that your fear can be overcome with love and hope, don’t give up.

    Canada sends its prayers and hope to you, stay strong Japan ❤

  299. Hey everyone,

    How are you feeling after this difficult time? Everything must kind of scary and different. I know I was scared for my Japanese friends and their families whom I love dearly. I hope that everything is alright for you. I hope that you can keep up in school. I hope that you have fun with your friends. I hope you can watch your favorite old “drama” on TV again.
    We are heading into spring, which is always nice. I am jealous that you have all those beautiful sakura trees to look at in Japan. I live in France and I only have one cherry tree. It is the neighbor’s but I can see it from my window and it is starting to bloom right now!
    I love spring because it the season of new beginnings. We leave the cold and dreary winter for flowers and green leaves. Maybe you will blossom as well this spring?
    Well, hang in there and spend time with your family and friends that love you.

  310. Dear Japan students,
    I feel really bad about what happened, I hope you are doing okay.

  311. As a frequent visitor to Japan, no natural disaster has felt as close to home as the Tohoku Earthquake on March 11th 2011 . I’ve been overwhelmed by different emoticons I’ve never felt before. Everyday I check the news in hopes there hasn’t been another earthquake. I’m contently e-mailing my friends in Japan to make sure they’re okay. I can’t get enough reassurance.

    As the nuclear power plants in Fukushima continue to be a threat and the freezing temperatures in the region continue to drop. I want you to know that my thoughts are with everyone in Japan. I know that as the weeks and months go by Japan will recover swiftly. I’ve already seen pictures of the reconstruction taking place. Quite frankly I’ve no words to describe them as other than incredible.

    The pictures and video I witnessed on that day will forever be in my memory. I will continue to support Japan and do what I can for the relief efforts in the near future. My thoughts are with you.

    God Bless Japan,


  312. Dear Student,

    I heard about the tsunami. I feel really bad for all of you and I feel sad for you guys so I am giving you my hope and luck. I hope you’re safe and sound.

  319. Dear Friend,
    Words can’t even begin to explain the sympathy I have for you. I understand that your world has drastically changed and that life is very tough at the moment. If you’ve lost someone special, I’m terribly sorry. I understand your hurt and pain. You are truly in my prayers and I wish nothing but the best for you. I’m unaware of your religion but I am a Christian and I believe that God won’t give you more than you can bear. Always remember, that right before your season of prosperity, is your storm. Just know that the best is yet to come. Hopefully you start back school soon and get back to learning and receiving your education. With everything in me, I hope that you make it through this and don’t give up. Any and everything is still possible in your life. You are on this Earth for a purpose and you need to fulfill it. Keep on keeping on and keep your head in the clouds. Don’t think it’s over, because it’s not.

  320. Dear Japan,

    I am very sorry for your loss and all the pain and grief it cost you. I just wanted to let you know that we are trying are hardest to help you and many more. When the earthquake happened I know you were scared and didn’t think you would make it. Then moments later you had to find out that a Tsunami was heading your way you were about to lose everything you worked for. I know that for some you have lost a family member, homes, and memories. Just know that you are the bravest people in the world today. You’ve been through so much and I just want you to know that you just have to lift up your head and your storm will soon be over, your rain will go away, and you can make it through this.

  326. Dear Japan,
    There are no words that could ever explain the hurt that you guys are feeling I know, and I can’t even begin to imagine how you feel either. If there was something I could do for everyone I wouldn’t think twice about it I would just do it. Words of encouragement are what each and every one of you need. I don’t really know your beliefs but, the God I believe in ALWAYS make a way! Everyone in Japan will be in my prayers day and night. I am truly sorry that this disaster has affected your lives. But, I can guarantee that when this is all over better things are coming your way. I pray that your family is okay, you get back in school, and the lost family members are found. Stay strong for yourself and one another. When there’s a will there’s a way!

    My friends and I pray for you everyday! Please continue to stay strong and I will keep crossing my fingers for both you and your beautiful country! Do not worry! Help is on the way♥
    With Love,

  330. Dear students in Japan,
    I am so sorry about the devastating earthquake and tsunami that hit your country. I would say that I feel your pain, but the truth is, I don’t. I don’t know how it feels like to lose a house, a school, friends, and family. What I do know, however, is that someday this tragedy will end, and that, with hope, you will push through. I have one thing that I want you all to do for us students in the US, and that is to laugh. Try as hard as you can to laugh, please, because if you do, it might help you get through this terrible time. As I said before, though, I don’t know your pain, so laughing might not help at all, but try anyway, because you don’t know if it works or not.

    Hello I heard about the big earthquake you guys got. It looked horrible. I bet it was scary. When you guys were in school what did you have to do?

  350. Japanese people have given all the rest of the world a very tough lesson. When disaster strikes the worst and best of humans will show, but all of you and your families have shown me and the world, that calamities can bring only GOOD. You are the first country that even facing the worst of the worst, still remain calm, still help each other, respect the laws and possesions of others, behave like role models. I feel the pride in every of your steps.

    Thank you all of you, thank you for proving that humans are good!

  351. Dear Japan,
    You are not alone. People all around the world are doing their best to help. And we hope your country will be back to normal soon. And we feel real bad about what happened.

  352. Dear Japan,

If I lived in Japan I would be as sad as you. We are all trying to help you guys. I would be scared if a 20 foot tsunami and an 8.9 earthquake hit me. Hang on we are coming Japan.

    From Andrew in America

  355. Dear Japanese children,

And it’s pretty obvious that we want that to happen!:)

    I pray for you and wish you all the best, let’s meet soon!


  368. Dear Japan,

    I was much shocked when I heard about earthquake and tsunami in Northeastern Japan few days ago. I have friends too in Sendai and Kesenuma but luckily they’re safe. I am really sad to see how many lives were claimed and countless properties were destroyed. We love you and would always keep you in our prayers. May God deliver you during such a tribulation. We are praying for the fast recovery of your home and country. We really hope to see you’d be able to resume your studies as soon as possible. To all the students in Japan, let’s pray for your friends out there who were affected by the disaster. Your ancestors took a great step to take Japan to this point and you, are the one who will take Japan to the next level, higher than before. Therefore, do not give up ! Keep going, I believe you all could make through this hard time. Lastly, God bless Japan and its nation~

  369. Dear Japan,

    Ever since I was a little girl, whenever I felt sad or scared I would imagine the day that I could get on a plane and fly to Japan and my life would be colourful and exciting. I have long admired the Japanese people’s courage, strength and dignity. I broke down in tears when I heard what happened to the country I have loved from afar, a country that always provided me with hopes and dreams. But then I remembered that the Japanese are strong, and they are enduring this troubled time and if they can be strong, so can I. I have no doubt that Japan will rise from this tragedy stronger than ever. No matter how dark and troublesome it gets, please remember there are many like me who believe in you! So you must not lose hope in yourselves! Keep going! We support you! I support you! The rest of the world knows that if anyone can survive this sort of event, it is the Japanese! Millions of us are sending love, prayers and donations your way! Japan is strong! And one day soon I will be there too, and we can smile and be happy with trouble far behind us!

    Lots of love,

  375. You found me, I found you, I don’t know why, but I feel we are connected somehow. I want you to read this letter and get courage to become what you want to become in life. There are times like this in which all of us would want to forget about all our dreams in order to stay in the place where we were put by disaster, but it is in times like this when the brave has the chance to show his courage and the kind his kindness. I don’t know you and you don’t know me, but as I said we are somehow connected and that is why I write you this letter.
    Times are hard, but think about this, if you are able to overcome the challenge, if you focus on your dreams and hopes, then there is nothing that may stop you from achieving your goals. You will be remembered not as the victim but as the hero because you were brave enough to overcome this challenge and moved on to the next step.

And as so many others have already said, just keep your hope and faith right now. Although it may seem like the end and as though it won’t get better you must remember that it will. You will get through this. And if you need someone to help you stand again there is no shame or worry in asking for it. The world is by your side and more than willing to help you in any way you may need. We are already doing our best by sending our people to help with the rescue efforts as well as sending any money that we can. The road to recovery will be a long and hard one but you do not have to go at it alone. Please know that your story has touched the hearts of so many and we all send such support and love your way. You will always have someone who will be there for you.

    Please stay strong! It’s hard to be strong during a crisis such as this but you must keep moving forward and keep your hope alive even if it seems useless. You will recover but the journey may be difficult. Remember that those you have lost will be alive forever within your heart and that those around you are going through the same thing. It is during these times that we must band together to help one another to restore order and lives.

    Please be safe and please be strong! You are in my thoughts always!

    Do not worry about anything,believe in God and know that the whole world is with U all and praying.
    I too pray for u all everyday.
    God Bless U all
    Loves to ALL

  389. I am native American. My people, as yours, feel death is a sad thing. However, I believe the people that died have gone to meet their ancestors. Surely they feel sadness at having to leave you behind but it is also a time of rejoicing and happiness. In this time of sadness for your loss think of the joy your loved one’s must feel. For they did not make the journey alone, they are with loving family. Times are sad yes, but keep the departed in your heart and mind and smile a little knowing that you will see them again someday.

  390. May everthing return to normal in Japan. We pray for all of you. May God Bless the country & save lives.

  391. 日本のみなさんへ、

  394. Dear Japan,

    I want you to know that there are so many of us in the USA whose hearts are broken for what you are having to go through. Every day I watch the news hoping that each day gets better for you but I know that it is so hard. What I see on tv is a wonderful country who is struggling through so much turmoil and I see the Japanese people suffering and yet willing to help others even when you have lost so much. Japan is an inspiration to the rest of the world. You are very much in my prayers and thoughts everyday. I pray that you stay strong, find your loved ones ok, get the food, shelter and water that you need to survive and that the crisis of the nuclear plants gets resolved with no more radiation. I know that Japan will rebuild and come back even stronger then before. My admiration and My LOVE to everyone there. Sue

  406. Dear Japanese Students,
    I am sorry for all the bad things happening to you and your country. I hope everything works out ok for all of you. We hear about new things going on in Japan here in America about every hour, and everytime I hear something new, it makes me want to help more. I am very impressed at how organized all of you are and how you practice once a year for situations just like this. Without all that practice, this situation would have been much worse. Everything will be fine very soon, I know it. There are people in America and all over the world ready to help and make everything better.

    With Love,
    Mike ❤ 🙂

  407. Dear japanese students, we all feel terrible about the horrific damage that the tsunami has done. I sincerely hope that everyone will pull through.

  410. dear children of japan,

My prays go out to all the familys affects by this terrible disaster, everyone in America has been following this terrible disater intently. I hope that things will soon return to a somewhat normal state for you. Best of luck.

  413. Dear Japan,
    I was devestated when i heard about your recent disaster. Know that we are all praying for you. Nature made an idiotic choice. Japan is probably the best country in the world. Hopefully all of you stay strong. And hopefull my letter, like all the others, made an impact on you. We are all thinking about you and are trying to do our best to help. As a young child, this letter is probably the least I can do, but know that I will always find oppurtunities to help charities raise money for you. Don’t let this disaster affect you too much ,because all of you need to do your best to stay strong and face the future.
    From, Anderson Wang

  414. Hey japanese people. Sorry about what you guys are going through but if your stuck in a while and its at that hard part where your shovel wont dig anymore, you have to go up right? Well its a nice relation with this kind of stuff. Your phones, computers, and robots are all ten times better than ours so I’m sure your technology can get you guys out of this problem. The power plant thing is really the worst of your problems but if the radiation goes east no one gets hurt and most people are sure the power plants will get fixed. Best wishes to you people and children and others. My friend anderson is sending one of these behind me 😀

  415. Dear Students,
    You are the strongest kids ever! To survive two disasters – the earthquake and tsunami – is truly a feat of strength and bravery. I am sure you can do it! Help will always be there, from people in your country and out. Stay strong and be proud – you are amazing! The whole world hopes for your safety and well-being. 🙂

  416. Dear Japanese students,

    When a tragedy happens, it’s hard to know which way to go. But you have a unique chance as students to turn something bad into something good because you represent the future of your country. By rebuilding yourselves and the friends and family around you in love and strength, no matter what your circumstances you can create something that will be strong against any disaster, just like we know you are. Please know that friends around the world are hoping, praying, and thinking of you every day and do your best! Across the ocean in Seattle, with love and prayers, from Sabrina.

  417. Hi Japan (corrected by my Anderson). Get well, eat your vegitables, exercise regularly, and listen to your compandions like your friend to your right, not your left because there listenining to you right now. Bye

  418. Hello again people of Japan,
    I left somethings out of my last letter, not only do i wish you all the best and anyone who cannot find a fsmily memeber the best of luck. But to make you feel better, in situations like this in the past the whole world has come together in instances like Haiti, The World Trade Center attcks and The Oil Spill in The Gulf. And as a common people we have managed to fix these disaters to the best of our ability, and although scars still remain from all of these events they end up only making us a stronger and more united people. I fully belive that the same will stand for the disater that struck you. Over time and with a great movement from people aroung the wprld you will recover and will be back to the normal life im sure you all miss dearly. Although like everything the scars will still be there. I hope for the best possible outcome. Stay strong and dont lose hope because you never know what could happen 🙂

    My Kindest,
    Dean McDonald

  419. Dear Japan:

  421. Dear children of Japan,
    I am very sorry for what happened to you guys, but I want you to know that countries all around the world are helping to try and make it better! Don’t lose hope and we love you!

  422. Dear brave children of Japan,
    This is a burden no child should have to bear. I cannot imagine how heavy your hearts must be right now. You must feel so very helpless, and at times, hopeless. Just remember, although your body may be small, your courage is huge. Sadly, many of you have lost family and friends-We can only tell you that every mother in the world holds a spot for you in their hearts. Mothers all over the world wake up and go to sleep with thoughts of you and prayers for your safety. Do not fear that the world will forget you, your parents and friends, or your country-the moms of the world will not let that happen, we promise. Stay safe, be brave and never lose hope!


  424. I am very sorry for what has happened to your nation. I hope all of you will be strong enough to bring your lives back to where they were. The whole world is with you.
    I wish you all to have long and happy life when your wunds heal.
    I’m sending love to you all from Belgrade, Serbia.

  425. To the Japanese;

    You have truly shown in the past week your kindness, your courage, and your heart. People around the world are not just talking about the destruction or the hardships we all know you’re experiencing, they are also talking about how you still help each other even when things are very hard, how you still try to do the right thing, and how brave you are.

    My children are half-Japanese. I wanted them to keep strong ties to Japan because of the strength of your culture, and they go back to Japan once a year. My oldest is organizing a fund drive in his school to help rebuild; it may not be much but we’re trying.

    Ganbatte kudasai,

  449. Hello,

    I am a kid’s meditation teacher in California. Yesterday, my class met and the kids were thinking about children in Japan and really wanted to send messages to the school children. Here they are:

    Hi, I’m Makena. By the time you read this I will be 10. I hope you are okay and your friends and family too. I’m sorry that Japan is facing this crisis but I hope everything’s okay now with you.

    Hi, this is Maggie – I’m very sorry about the earthquake and I hope you are okay

    Miles: I’m sorry if anything happened to you. I hope you find a treasure to guide you through this time.

    Hi, my name is Eva and I’m 9. I have a friend who lives in Japan who’s name is Misaki. She’s okay and I’m glad that you are all too!

    Ben: I hope there is a treasure in all of this.

    We open our arms and give you hugs from across the ocean. You are loved! We are thinking about you.

    Love, Inner Discovery Class, RIver School Petaluma, California

  450. Dear Children of Japan,

    I can’t believe that this actually happened to you. It must be very devastating, but I hope you and your family members are all okay and that you recover from this soon! Don’t worry, it will be okay.

  451. Dear Students of Japan:

    The disaster of the Tsunami has grabbed the attention of the entire world, and people everywhere are watching, and doing everything to help you all. You must all stay strong and brave in this time, as we all send hopes that things will get better. Things will get better.

  452. Ya Allah, may the Japanese recover from this horrible disaster. I pray to Allah that you may all finally be safe. Please don’t lose hope and pray. Pray to God. Don’t be disheartened. Life’s like that. There will be disasters and there will be hope.

  453. Dear Students in Japan, I am in seventh grade, and I am writing to you from North Carolina in the USA. I hope that everyone is doing OK. I know life after the earthquake and tsunami must be hard. I am very thankful for those that survived. I never thought that what they said on the news would be this terrible. I hope that everyone is keeping warm and those who lost loved ones will be cured from their sadness.

    I wish for everyone to stay safe.

  456. Dear sweethearts,

    You know, all of you went through something different. Do you know why ? Different things happen to those who are special. It’s because you all are so special and God wants to put your strength and ability and also your specialness to a test ! It’s like a monthly test, just this time it’s so different .. So different that those with extra specialness are brought back to God’s wings ! They scored over excellent marks, so God wants them back so that they can be happy always. They may include your parents, siblings, family, teachers and friends !

    As for those who stay after this tremendous test, you’re good too, doing very good indeed, it’s just that God thinks that you should stay here and proof to God that how good you all can still be ! All of you who stay and survived this test, you have to be really strong, stronger and better ! Stand back up too ! And do your best with what God has given you after the “test” ! Because one day, God will be satisfied with your “achievement” and bring you back to him to be with those you’ve lost during this test. Because you’re all his little angels.. but that day will be so far away, you all have to behave well from now on ! Be safe. Be Strong. Be Healthy. Be happy, little angels ! YOu can do it !!! Gambate !!!!!!!

  457. Dear child,

    Don’t give up hope! People all over the world are praying for you and for your saftey! Keep doing what you can to have good days of happiness, because everything will be better in the end. I know things will get better. Keep living strongly and you’ll get through all of this!

    A friend ❤

  458. Dear Children,
    We love you so much. We know that you have lost much. We are very sorry. We hope that are safe and warm and that you have food and clean water. We love you very much and are sending you lots of love through the sky. Your courage and determination is teaching the whole world to be brave and strong. You are our heroes and we will always be proud of you and remember you foreverr. You are in our hearts, our dreams and prayers. With love, Amy, Durham, North Carolina, United States of America

  460. Dear students, I know the disaster was very scary, but know that all of us in the USA are thinking of you with kindness and love in our hearts. Good luck as you go through the changes that come with such a big event.

  461. To all the students in Japan,

    I really wish I knew a way to help you all, or could somehow be there to help. I can’t possibly imagine all the pain and suffering you are all going through right now. Maybe it is easy for me to say this because I am not there, but I have hope in humanity and I have hope in your country that this obstacle can be overcome. Please know that there are people that care about you. We may think that things like gender, class, or nationality separate us, but in the end we are all humans. This isn’t just a tragedy that only inflicts one group of people, but for the whole human condition. I extend my hand from across the globe to say that I care and to stay strong.

    Yours sincerely,

  462. My fellow students of Japan,

    You are from a country which has won the admiration of the world with your astonishing progress. You have been the inspiration for developing countries such as mine. Your industrious nature has already helped you stand strong even in the face of so many crisis that you have been unfortunately thrown into. This one though a lot more severe is not any different. Though the future might look bleak, I urge you to have confidence. Just look at the numerous incidents from the history of your great country and draw inspiration from it. You can be instrumental in helping your country overcome this disaster and stand strong as always. All you have to do is stay confident. Do not lose hope because help will always be available in ways you don’t expect.

    You are the hope of your country which is the hope of the world. So be strong. And remember, people from across the world stand behind you.

  463. Dear Friends, Families, Students, and Children of Japan,

    My deepest sympathy goes out to you and your country. Please know that we are all here for you and we are trying to do everything that we can to help.

    All of you have a great spirit and are filled with kindness.

    Please never forget that.

    From America with a lot of love and sending you 1000 hugs,


  464. Hello.
    I am an English teacher in New Caledonia and together with my class, we have written letters to the children who have been pulled from everything they’ve ever known into living in shelters. Unfortunately, I can’t type 25 messages on here so on behalf of my students and I, I just want to let you all know how much I admire your strength as a people. You’ve pulled through a three-fold disaster of epic proportions and still the people are working as hard as ever, you are all still as dedicated as ever.

    You’ve kept structure and order where any other country would have fallen victim to looting and violent crime. I remember in Haiti the people took the earthquake as an excuse to wreak havoc.

    Your calm and your enduring spirit is an inspiration to us all. You are in my prayers and constantly in my thoughts.

    God bless Japan

  465. Dear fellow friends in Japan,

    I was shocked when I first heard about this. I do hope you all are doing alright and that your friends and family are safe.

    Everyone from all around the world is doing their best to help out, even myself. It may take some time for things to get on track again, but don’t never think that it’ll get worse.

    Were all the same. Almost everyone from different countries knows how it feels when a close friend or family member gets killed or to lose their homes.

    We will never abandon the people who we care and love. Remember that. ❤

    from your new friend,

  483. Dear children,

    My heart goes out to you. I can’t imagine what you are going through but I know that God has not forgotten about you. He is still on His throne and working out this tragedy for your good somehow. Ask God for courage and strength to continue to focus on the good things and not the tragedy. Many friends and family and new love relationships will come to you just hold on. Please talk about your feelings to get you through this do not shut down. When things settle you will be able to help others relate to what they have been through by your strength and caring. Jesus said, “let the children come.” He loves the children and He is with you wherever you are. He will give you peace, comfort, love, mercy just run into His arms and He will hold you tight each night and give you good rest in His loving arms. You have lost but you have not lost everything! Know that many are praying and loving you from around the world! If I could I would hold each one of you and love you as my own child, sing to you and hold your hand to reassure you that things will be better soon. ~with all my love-Lucy, California
