Furu Sato is a traditional Japanese song about longing to return to one's hometown. I recorded for my family in Sendai, Japan. This goes out to all suffering during the time of the tsunami/earthquake. May this song be a prayer to bring light and love to all in Japan. All of the images are from Sendai, Japan...which are mostly washed away now. The woman in the pink shirt is my missing Aunt, Kyoko Ouchi. May she be surrounded by light. Koto by Yukiko Matsuyama, Produced by John Rangel. www.MadiSato.com

Sendai Family update... My grandmother is in the area where the tsunami has hit. She was in a nursing home and it sounds like all the elderly in that home had evacuated to the roof when the tsunami hit. Her actual home where many of my family live together (including 2 uncles, 5 cousins, 2 aunts and grandmother) was in the line of the tsunami and the temple where my ancestors are buried for over 400 years appear to have been hit. This is the gravesite of my father as well. Keep sending your energy, chants and prayer to Sendai. So much devastation. 4 more of my family members are inside a school building in Sendai. There is only one family member still missing. Her name is Kyoko Ouchi. Thank you all for your prayers. Madi

All of the Sato Family are accounted for including, Kyoko San who was missing for one week. I am in contact daily with them and hear that they are grateful to be alive. As many in Sendai, they have lost their homes and ALL of their possessions. The Satos are embarking on a completely new life. Even though they do not have material things I know their spirits are strong and they will move forward to rebuild....little by little.

My family and I are organizing a foundation in honor of our father, Tadaharu Sato (1948-1980) to help raise funds and provide healing for those in Sendai, Japan. If you are interested in donating or helping in any way please contact me, Madi Sato at madisato@gmail.com
May we keep the Japanese people of Sendai in our hearts and show our kindness to them for many years to come.
We are ONE on this earth!
with love and gratitude,
Madi Sato
