It has been two years since the terrible earthquake and tsunami in Japan on March 11, 2011. Let's continue to remember those affected by the disaster. Many are still in the long process of recovery--still grieving and still rebuilding their lives. However, do you notice the resiliency--especially in the children?
Hello everyone! If you are interested in practicing English, join me in the English Conversation Room in Google Plus. A colleague of mine and I just started up a new online community. Hope to see you there.
It has been so long since I posted on my blog! Well, I'll try to post more often. I'll start with this video. This is very funny! You've got to watch it. If you can get the English, it is even funnier!
My wife stumbled on something cool today. She was doing a search and found that my "free hugs for world peace" movement made it on to Wikipedia.
There is an article about the "free hugs campaign," and if you scroll down, my name is mentioned as starting the Sep 21 International Day of Peace free hugs for world peace event. There is even a link to my Facebook Free Hugs for World Peace page!
On Friday, International Day of Peace, we went out to Shibuya and gave FREE HUGS for WORLD PEACE. We were a great team that day! Thanks Megumi, Laurier, and Harumi (she was the one taking pictures and videos)!
Many other people did the same thing in their cities, too!
We had around 60 cities participate in the peace day event. The video will come out soon...well, after I collect all of the pictures and video clips from around the world.
It's quite an impressive city list...check it out!
