Panda eye heart

I got this slipper for two feet for Christmas but just yesterday I noticed it has a heart eye.



I dedicate this panda heart for Japanese. I hope and believe they strong to overcome this disaster.
My heart thoughts go out to Japan . My prayers are with the people affected by the earthquake.

Being in China, 100km away from Beijing, I'm also worried about the potential radiation.
China is in panic buying salt because people believe it could help ward off the effects of potential radioactivity from Japan’s nuclear power plant. Chinese hope iodine in the salt can reduce the impact of possible radioactivity. Some people also believe future salt could be contaminated by the disaster and were buying now to stock up on supply.

Listening all the new reporting panic in China my family is also concerned. China's ministry of environmental protection has said so far no abnormal radiation levels had been detected from Fukushima, which is 1,000km from the nearest part of north-eastern China.

I just hope I wont have to leave soon. But...

Oh Dani. My heart aches for Japan as well. All of these disasters piling up. I am praying for them, and for you. I have heard about people buying salt ... apparently people on the west coast of the US have started doing the same. They just put on the news last night that iodized salt doesn't contain enough iodine to help much.

I hope you don't have to leave China. This has been your dream! I feel selfish not to have thought about other countries close by.

Take care, my wonderful blogging sister. Please keep us updated on what's going on in your world.

Those slippers are so cute, and probably nice and warm!
We are anxiously following the news about Japan; it must be scary to be so close. You are in my thoughts!

I can imagine it would be so frightening to be where you are right now--I've been thinking of you and of the people in China--all those who are affected by this.

((hugs))

Dani,
Yesterday I was with my son on Skype, (he lives in Shenzhen) and since he teaches in a school with Kindergarden age children he would be one of the first to know it if little kids should be evacuated. He did not say a single word about it, so...maybe that will put you more at ease:)

Don't panic -If you think about it, if you have to be evacuated, then everyone has to go, so you can pick things back up when you return! Take care:)
