HOMEWORK

Before I begin I want to say a few words about the terrible earthquake and tsunami that struck Japan earlier today.  First and for most, our thoughts and our prayers are with the people of Japan.  It’s a potentially catastrophic disaster and images of destruction and flooding coming out of Japan are simply heart breaking.  

Japan is of course one of our strongest and closest allies, and this morning I spoke with Prime Minister Kon.  On behalf of the American people, I conveyed our deepest condolences especially the victims and their families and I offered our Japanese friends whatever assistance is needed.  

We currently have an aircraft carrier in Japan and another is on its way.  We also have a ship enrooted in the M island to assist as needed.  The defense department is working to account for all our military personnel in Japan.  US ambulance personnel in Tokyo have moved to an outside location and the state department is working to account for and assist any and all American citizens who are in the country.  

Tsunami warnings have been issued across the pacific and we’ve seen initial waves from the tsunami come ashore on Guam and other US territories in Alaska and Hawaii, as well as along the west cost.  Here in the United States there hasn’t been any major damage so far, but we are taking this very seriously and we are monitoring the situation very closely.  FEMA is fully activated and it’s coordinating with the state and local officials to support these regions as necessary.  And let me just stress that people are told to evacuate do as you are told.

Today’s events remind us just how fragile life can be.  Our hearts go out to our friends in Japan across the region and we are gonna stand with them as they recover and rebuild from this tragedy.
