“Yoshikawa-San’s Special Sake Jug”
( a special gift from a Great Japanese Friend to My Father)
Time has gone by, friends have lost touch, but I wonder where Yoshikawa-San is today. Is he OK? alive? Is his family safe? So many questions and no answers….I do know one thing for sure. He was/is a great man and has/had a wonderful family. Whatever is happening to Yoshikawa-san, he is proceeding with humility and caring for others as he has always done. My thoughts are with him, and others like him, as they deal with great loss and disaster..I am so proud to have known him. I am so proud of the way the Japanese people are dealing with this disaster. I have heard of no looting and other criminal behaviors…This says a lot for the Japanese culture. My hat is off to you. I hope things will return to normal one day.
Thank you for the inspiration to the rest of the world, and hopefully we can learn from you. We need to learn to get along, and take care of each other as you are showing us by example. Teamwork is the answer, my friends…. and hard work……Yoshikawas-san, you and your countrymen are showing us what we need to do. Now, let’s do it!
Just a thought for you today….Hope it makes sense to you.
