On the disaster in Japan..


I want to take a moment and say a few things about the terrible earthquake and tsunamis that are devastating Japan at this moment. Thousands are dead and 80,000 plus are considered missing, and the numbers are growing. This is an extremely terrible situation.
We are praying for everyone's safety and hope that our fellow Japanese Picos are safe. If you are reading this and are living in Japan, please leave a comment and let us know of your current situation.

Thank you,


  1. I really hope everyone is ok. I'm praying for you guys! I'm actually really worried about one of my friends, not a Pico friends.. but a Polyvore+Tumblr friend. Me and her are close, but I don't know if shes safe or not. I hope things will get better. <33

  2. I was actually in Hawai'i last night when the earthquake hit. Obviously, Hawai'i was not hit with any of the devistation Japan endured, but it was scary enough to be evacuated from my hotel in the middle of the night. That, and sleeping in my rental car certainly wasn't the way I planned to spend my vacation. My heart really goes out for the families of those lost in Japan. Whenever I could, I snuck into an open bar and watched the news. It was horrifying.

    To the Japanese people (and Picos) out there: Stay safe, and good luck finding lost family and friends. We're all hoping the best for you all.

  3. I am a Osaka,Japan Resident
    All countries with a kind heart I wish they help Japan because I'm proud to be a Japanese citizen and I love my country so much but I believe that everything would be alright and I believe that the economy of Japan will not go down but still normal and I also believe after this incident Japan will still one of the richest country I also believe that Japan will recover soon as possible So....Please pray for my country.
    Thank you
