Pray For Japan
Before I start, i would just like to extend my sympathies to everyone affected and who lost their family, friends or were otherwise hurt by this disaster. I pray that you will get back on your feet, and that whatever happens takes a turn for the better. And I wish I could do more for you.
That being said, I'd like to turn the tables to the people claiming Japan had this disaster coming. I keep telling myself that it is only cruel jokes, but I've been horrofied by poeple actually believing this completely. I've even heard a nun talking publicly that this disaster hit Japan because they do not believe in god. The are several pictures roaming the internet about americans laughing at this because of Pearl Harbor. Im not trying to generalize or pin the americans, because i know a lot of them a doing whatever they can to aid Japan, but this just gets on my nerve. I feel like screaming at them and shake them until these kind of thoughts makes a hasty exit out of their mind. Yes, Pearl Harbor was horrible, but no country, race, species, continent or living thing deserves such a disaster.
Another sad thing to observe is, that circumstances like these is when we see the real everyday heroes. The heroes that stay behind and do not expect to come back to their families. The workers at the Fukushima Nuclear Plant still work tirelessly at keeping of disaster. I particularily remember a translated Twitter message
ABC made with a daughter to one of the workers, who talks about how her mom reacted when the dad took off to help repairing the broken reactor. "I have never seen my mom cry like this. Poeple at the reactor fight and sacrifice themselves to protect you. Please, dad, come home alive!".

On a last note, I will provide you a link to the Red Cross Society. Help out if you feel you can.
In any case, I pray for Japan. Do you?
