001 Maison Pour Tous, OctevilleWhile waiting for class to start at Maison Pour Tous, I found myself enjoying the cherry blossoms along Avenue de Normandie.  It seemed no matter where I looked, I could find a little bit of Japan--the Shinto gate in Gâtinais park nearby evoked strong memories of my time there.  005 Help Japan, CherbourgThe pink petals were falling like snow and as I went to put away my camera, I saw the Japanese flag unintentionally represented along the wall of my school.003 Help Japan, Cherbourg  Coincidence ?  002 Maison Pour Tous, OctevilleDuring World War II, the Japanese people were encouraged by their government to believe that the souls of dead soldiers, especially those that drowned, were reincarnated in the cherry blossoms.  This seems rather apt in the current situation with so many dead from the recent earthquake and tsunami.  My heart goes out to the people of Japan.006 Cherry Blossoms, Cherbourg   Earthquake, tsunami.

This small country is hurting.

See what you can do.
