I think I waited a little too long to do this...I updated facebook, but it occurred to me that I'm not facebook friends with all of my followers. So...I just wanted to let you all know that I'm okay. I wasn't even in Japan when the earthquake, and even if I had been, Yokosuka wasn't affected very much by the disaster.
And this this public knowledge, so it's okay if I say it, but my ship was in Singapore when the earthquake hit, and we're now on our way back to Japan to help in the humanitarian efforts.
Please be praying for the Japanese people, as they try to pick up the pieces and try to move forward. It's going to be a long road to recovery, and they're going to need all the prayers and help we can provide as Americans.
