I am in awe at the strength the Japanese people show on the news coverage during this terrible time. They have dealt with the horrific loss of their loved ones and their properties, and yet, even with the terrible issues involving the nuclear power plants, they are pitching in and helping each other out. They are not waiting for someone else to do it. . . they seem to be taking charge of their own destinies as best they can. What a remarkable group of people. We in the USA need to take a few lessons from them on how to react to disasters.

My prayers are with those brave people. dana
