3.11

3年前の今日東日本大震災が東北を襲い、多くの方々の尊い命をが失われました。犠牲者を偲ぶとともに被災者の方々の癒しを心からお祈りいたします。
また、ヤーンアライブの活動のために世界中から多くの方々がご支援くださったことに心から感謝いたします。皆様のご厚意がどれほど被災者メンバーを励ましたことでしょう。
先日、一人のメンバーが「2011年3月11日は過去。今日こうしてあることに感謝して、明日に向かいましょう」と言いました。そうです。我々ヤーンアライブはこれから先に希望を持ちワクワクしています。
Today we pause to remember the terrible tragedy that occurred three years ago here in the North East of Japan.  We remember the many thousands who lost their lives and we continue to pray for peace and comfort for those who are still dealing with trauma and loss
Our thoughts also turn to all of the people around the world who have supported us at Yarn Alive with yarn and supplies and monetary gifts,   You have done so much to help bring joy and encouragement to the women in our classes.  You have helped them know that they are not forgotten!    We are so thankful!
As one of the ladies said the other day, “March 11, 2011, is in the past.  We are grateful for today and look forward to the future.”   At Yarn Alive we are excited about the future.
