An 8.9 magnitude earthquake hit off the coast of Japan today. It was one of the largest quakes in recorded history and it has caused/is causing massive tsunamis throughout the region. Officials have only begun to assess the extent of this tragedy but the photographs show the devastation. I’m not going to try to report the news on a music blog. Anyone who finds this post certainly knows how to find a reputable news source. Instead I offer Japan’s national anthem, “Kimigayo,” along with my prayers, sympathy and support for the victims.
