Weekend Wrapup: "How was your week?" edition


Well, that was a pretty crazy week, wasn't it?

We've got a lot of news this week, much of it on the huge earthquake Japan endured. Dale experienced it firsthand and gave us a little update, too. Our best wishes and prayers with everyone affected by this tragedy. Of course, you don't have to just sit and read about everything – you can also help! How?

Make a donation to Japan Society or Global Giving! Every little bit helps!

Check out all the other articles and links from this past week after the break.
