Contribute as you can to help our colleagues in Japan

EDIS members may know that the largest constituency of our members outside the United States is in Japan. One week after the earthquake/tsunami catastrophe, in the morning issue of Japan's biggest new-paper, Asahi Shimbun, Emily Dickinson was
quoted in its most popular column: "Unto a broken heart/ No other one may go/ Without the high prerogative/ Itself hath suffered too" (J1704/ Fr1745). We are currently raising funds to send aid to Japan and want to share with you a statement from the Emily Dickinson Society of Japan.
