Statement by John Hope Bryant on the tragedy in Japan, concern for Hawaiian Islands
I send my love, prayers and deep concern to the people of Japan, as well as the American citizens that will soon deal with the impact of the Japanese earthquake and Tsunami in the Hawaiian Islands.
I have very found memories of my numerous trips to Japan over the years, as well as my countless friends, and a mentor (Ambassador Saburo Yuzawa), who live there. Maui in the Hawaiian Islands is in many ways my home away from home, and personally, I have family in the State of Hawaii.
My heart and prayers go out to all.
