Helping hand

Volunteers from the tsunami-hit town of Ishinomaki, Miyagi Prefecture, carry debris from a home in the Far Rockaways section of New York on Tuesday. The house is one of thousands of homes damaged by flood waters during Superstorm Sandy. The Japanese volunteers’ visit was arranged by Peace Boat, AmeriCares and World Cares Center.

    Pamelot, those volunteers may well be living and studying nearby. I now a handful of youth who lost parents to the tsunami, who received scholorships to study in the US. Even if these four people did pay to fly there from Japan, that wouldn't even cover the cost of laying a foundation, much less build a house.
