Thoughts about Japan

Our board member Tom Schieffer, former U.S. Ambassador to Japan, just left the country literally hours ago. He comments:

“Japan is a very sad place. There is great anxiety— a sense that there may be more to come. The concern over the nuclear situation overhangs everything. The aftershocks are very strong and recurring. Yet the Japanese endure. No looting, no panic. The Japanese show a greater sense of resignation than anger. The Japanese are very proud of the stoicism they are showing in this. They should be.”
