Thank You Google!
The wounds from the 9.0 earthquake that hit Japan a month ago, and from all the other problems that the seismic event caused (the tsunami, the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear crisis, etc), will take a long time to heal. Thousands are physically wounded, thousands are dead, many have lost their homes and the infrastructure is crippled, and there is no doubt vast psychological damage. At times like this, a message of hope and support can truly help. That's why I hope that you will send a message to our Japanese neighbors on this small planet. It will be auto-translated to Japanese by 'Messages for Japan', a new site by Google.

As the country turns from immediate disaster response to the next phase of rebuilding, this site will help deliver messages of hope and support from all over the world to the people of Japan.
