Tsunami survivors send thanks to American military pilots of Operation Tomodachi
Via Japan Probe. This amazing aerial photo was taken by an American helicopter pilot flying over Onagawa, Japan, delivering much-needed aid to victims of the Tohoku earthquake and tsunami. Members of the American military are participating in Operation Tomodachi (tomodachi means "friend" in Japanese) and, according to Japan Probe, have "made some significant contributions to relief efforts. They’ve provided logistical support for Japanese aid workers, participated in search and rescue missions, and delivered tons of food and supplies to survivors."
There is still so much work to be done and people to help. I know many countries are helping Japan during this horrible disaster, but seeing this pic makes me feel proud :)
