After 10 days I still have no words to express all this pain that I have in my heart!

I know that Japan lost many innocent lives, but if this kind of disaster had happened in some other country, we would have million of dead people! I’m proud of Japanese people! Their respect, culture and intelligence, saved million of lives!

With all my love and respect,

Edu Falaschi

To all our dear fans and friends in Japan,
I know that you are a brave and hard working people, and I know that you will overcome this bad situation in the best way possible.
