Six hours ago, an email from a friend in Japan. She and her family will leave the country on a 10:40am flight, Wednesday. She says many people in Tokyo are leaving, if they can.
With her son's small hand on her shoulder, she has wept, saying to him, to us,
'I don't want to be the only safe ones.
I want everyone to be safe.'
