On Friday, March 11th, an earthquake that registered at 9.0 rocked the Pacific Ocean, northeast of Japan at about 2:46 PM (JST). Already the death toll is at over 3,000 and more are surely to come.
The first two days of the tragedy, I only read about it. Yesterday and today I finally saw video. It’s truly amazing. Some of the most incredible destruction has taken place. People are looking for family members and friends, and water and food are in short supply.
The most remarkable thing, so far, has been the calm and understanding nature of the Japanese citizens as they learn from government officials, that water and food are scarce. Compare this to how some of our citizens reacted to recent crisis…we can learn something from Japan.
Reagan (my daughter) was watching some of the video from Japan. She asked me, when she learned that there were children in Japan that were having a hard time, “What are their names?” I told her I didn’t know. She replied, “We’ll have to ask them.”
