Re: Nippon Disaster

Nes and Walter,

Thank you for your efforts and support. I am proud and moved by how quickly my Dutch student/friends have responded to both my personal feelings and to the tremendous need in Japan right now. Marcel shared with me that the Netherlands has a tradition of rising to help those in need. Please keep up the good work, situations like these are where the rubber (espoused ideals) meet the road (real need.) It is unfortunate that these kinds of situations are so frequent. However, it is very fortunate that we live in a time when there are so many that are blessed with relative safety and the ability and opportunity to offer help.

Sincerely,
Allen
