Gaman

In Japanese the word "gaman" means to tolerate things with perseverance and dignity. Japanese-American actor George Takei discussed this when he was on CNN this week. "Today," he said, "we are all Japanese." My heart goes out to those who are enduring so much. Please give what you can. Gaman.

It's so huge and hard to wrap our heads around...not so hard to wrap our hearts around it. We are all one family with the Japanese.
