Statement of Sympathy

It is with profound sadness that we offer our deepest sympathy and heartfelt condolences to the people of Japan in their hours of great and continuing tragedy.

On behalf of the Board of Directors and the entire membership of the American Wagyu Association, please know that we have all watched in horror the cascading series of events unfolding before the world’s eyes.

The deaths and suffering unleashed by the earthquake, followed by the catastrophic tsunami – and now, the nuclear crisis – is almost too much for anyone to bear.

We know that the strong Japanese spirit will ultimately prevail and that Japan will overcome her time of great pain and misery, this humanitarian calamity, albeit with great sadness and heartbreak.

We are certain you will endure this time of great adversity.

Our hearts and thoughts and prayers are with all of Japan – especially to those who have lost loved ones and those whose fate is still unknown.

We are all Japanese today.
