On this 10th anniversary of the Great Tohoku Earthquake, we honor and remember all those who have passed away, honor and remember all that was lost, and acknowledge the unrelenting effort and perseverance of the people of Tohoku in the rebuilding process. We are grateful for your friendship and stand with you, pray with you, and will continue to be a part of your rebuilding efforts in any way that we can.
