WE ARE ALL JAPAN anthology
 

Authored by Sasa Vazic

Sasa Vazic of Serbia and Robert D. Wilson of the Philippines, both noted poets, writers, and editors, want the people of Japan to know they aren't alone in dealing with the aftermath of the tsunami, earthquake, and resultant nuclear disaster that occurred on March 11, 2011. This course of events rocked the security and prosperity of one of the world's richest nations. Previously the victim of two nuclear bomb explosions during World War Two, Japan once again was on the receiving end of a wake of destruction left by man, a Gojira trampling the existence of a people who want what every person wants: security, peace of mind, and self-sustenance.

Vazic and Wilson are deeply involved in the English-language Japanese short form poetry world, and thusly, feel a debt of gratitude to the culture that gave the world haiku and like genres: Japan. What happened to Japan could have happened to any nation. And what happened is affecting nations on the other side of the ocean.

This anthology, WE ARE ALL JAPAN, is a gift to Japan, and printed copies have been distributed free of charge to the schools and libraries in the areas hardest hit by this train of disasters. Copies are for sale as well, and all proceeds will go to the Japanese Red Cross and to the Salvation Army. Vazic and Wilson have donated their services as have others involved in bringing this gift to the Japanese people.

"WE STAND BESIDE YOU, PEOPLE OF JAPAN. WE PRAY, MEDITATE, AND REACH OUT, UNCONDITIONALLY."
