A truly terrible tragedy for the people of Japan. Glad Kiyo and family are ok. I've heard from my mate in Japan and he is fine as his family. He's a friend of Nori's and has said that Nori and his family are also ok.
You get a famine somewhere and you can donate to a can we help with this?
My thoughts and prayers go out to everyone affected by these awful events

Wise words from kiyo.

I hope that even if Kiyo doesn't win at the opening round that the BSB riders express their sympathy and dedicate their wins to those affected in Japan. Sadly this disaster seems to be getting worse with news of further problems with the nuclear reactor.

Cubikrube - thank you for updating us via your personal contacts.

Good news for Kiyo and his family after this awful tragedy. I have been to Japan many times and am familiar with many of the places we have been seeing on the news. We currently have a couple of Japanese engineers visiting us for a few weeks. One of them is from Sendai and has been unable to contact anyone at all, which makes the current disaster even more poignant for me. All my best wishes to our friends in Japan.

Every news item i watch and every report i read about what's happened in Japan make's me feel so sad at the amount of people that lost their lives and those who survived but have lost everything.If there's one country that can pull together and rebuild itself quickly then it's Japan.It's a terrible situation caused by an act of nature.That kind of makes you think about all the man made bullsh1t going on in the world caused by greed and ego and just how pointless it all is.

Sheen7. I could not agree with you more! Kind of puts everything into perspective, the world is a fragile place! My thoughts and prayers go out to everyone that has been affected in this terrible disaster.

I just feel that it's at moments like this when we'll see what the Japanese people are made of, they'll get back up, dust themselves down and show us why such a small Island is the world's third biggest economy.

It's this kind of spirit I hear in Kiyo's aim to win the first race. Really sad for Japan, but selfishly glad that this apalling event hasn't also deprived us of Kiyo.

Kind of puts everything into perspective a bit doesn't it. Next time you moan about being the weather being cold or wet or windy just think how lucky we all are. Is it just me or does anyone else look at the footage and feel so helpless?

Those images on the news certainly shocked me. Very scarey just watching it, let alone being caught up in it. Its the kids i feel most sorry for. Come on you world leaders, stop all these conflicts for a while, and lets all club together and help these people get back on their feet.
