Special Edition – January 8, 2012


On this Sunday morning, with everything we all take for granted – from hot and cold running water to gas and electricity in our safe and secure homes – I thought I would send this Special Edition from Japan, saying “Thank You” to the world.

In an earlier newsletter, just after this horrendous event occurred, I predicted that Japan, and the Japanese people themselves, would pull through – and be well ahead of those unfortunate ones who were victims of Katrina, years ago.  It is sad commentary indeed, that America still has not dealt with this catastrophe in the proper manner.

In roughly nine months this is how Japan looks today.

I urge you all to view the link below – and to consider how the Japanese decided to deal with this, almost Biblical in proportion, tragedy – and to admire their grit and determination in getting themselves back on their own feet.

Having spent 25 years in that great country, you might now get an inkling as to why I still hold a special place in my heart for Japan and the Japanese people.  Simply put, Japan is my second home.

I thank Billy Joe and Maria Reynolds and their friend, Richard Lamb, for forwarding this site to me.

I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

Have a good Sunday, enjoy the football games – and remember how lucky WE THE PEOPLE really are.

We have absolutely nothing to complain about.

Until next time.

Best wishes,

Lawrence Klepinger
