NW Zen Community to hold public memorial to Japan disaster victims
The public is invited to a special memorial service for the victims of the earthquake and tsunami that devastated much of northeastern Japan in March.
Resident priest Kosho Itagaki says in a news release:
"We will pray for the victims of this disastrous earthquake, and we hope to come together beyond any differences in ethnic, racial, linguistic and religious backgrounds...over ten thousand are confirmed dead and another sixteen thousand are still missing. As a Zen priest, I believe, as do many religious leaders, that at the root we all share our basic humanity and that this is reason enough for us all to come together during this painful time for the people of Japan."
