Pochi@Shinku, that was an admirable thing to do, writing the JSF official. I'm sure it meant a great deal to her, to receive both an apology and a statement of support. As you say, Japanese skating officials are hurting right now for more than one reason. The skating event of the season, which they worked toward for years, has evaporated just days before it was to take place. And the country they love has been deeply wounded. The moment you took to acknowledge their contributions to skating will resonate for them, I have no doubt.
Well Shinku, as a BIG Miki fan I was counting in joy and excitement the days left till the Tokyo Worlds before the disaster came. Tokyo Worlds meant something special to a Miki fan such as I, and I'm sure it meant a lot to Miki too.
I worry now for not only Miki but all the participants, because it must be VERY hard to regroup their motivation (appetite) toward what became sort of a long delayed main dish in a full course dinner.
But now the most important thing is to move forward, and to look at the sunny side of things; I know and I will.
Let me say that one thing is very sure; the Japanese fans would LOVE to have the Worlds in Japan again some day!! I really hope it won't be too far in the future!!
