Thanks to Vicki Pollard for sharing these words of Thich Nhat Hanh
> Dear friends in Japan,
> As we contemplate the great number of people who have died in this
> tragedy, we may feel very strongly that we ourselves, in some part or
> manner, also have died.
> The pain of one part of humankind is the pain of the whole of
> humankind. And the human species and the planet Earth are one body.
> What happens to one part of the body happens to the whole body.
> An event such as this reminds us of the impermanent nature of our
> lives. It helps us remember that what's most important is to love each
> other, to be there for each other, and to treasure each moment we have
> that we are alive. This is the best that we can do for those who have
> died: we can live in such a way that they continue, beautifully, in
> us.
> Here in France and at our practice centers all over the world, our
> brothers and sisters will continue to chant for you, sending you the
> energy of peace, healing and protection. Our prayers are with you.
> Thich Nhat Hanh
