Last week, I wrote to each of our Japanese customers, wishing you well during this difficult time. I would like to repeat those wishes here.
Over the years, many physicians from Japan have purchased Thinklabs electronic stethoscopes for teaching, research and private practice in Cardiology, Pulmonology, Internal Medicine and other specialties. I have had fascinating conversations with many of you at conferences, from senior professors to residents in training.
As you deal with this triple catastrophe of an earthquake, a tsunami, and what looks like an impending nuclear fallout threat, please know that we are thinking of you and your families each day.
Japan is a an impressive and proud country. When I visited Japan, I was amazed at the elegance and the organization, the technology and the people. From a place where every stone is placed with intention, where every flower is grown purposefully, it is tragic to see the chaos that has been left in the wake of the water rushing in.
Japan will triumph over the chaos of nature and man-made dangers. It will not be easy, but you will succeed in this endeavor. We wish you well - to those of you who are using our stethoscopes to heal, and to those who need healing - our prayers are with you.
