Members of our law school community are personally affected by this tragedy, they are frighten by what they see on the internet and television and the silence on the other side of their phone calls home, they are overwhelmed by the severity of the quake and are sickened with worry as they wait to learn the fate of their friends and families. We keep them and their loved ones in our thoughts and pray for mercy, for safety and for relief from the trauma left by the initial quake and current aftershocks.
