48. My good friend

Was so angry when I talked to him. He had seen signs every where on the internet, postings on Facebook and even twitter, saying "Please Pray for Japan". The guy was probably ten miles away from the actual devastation, had lost two or three of his best friends and all people were saying was "Please pray for Japan"



I could imagine his frustration. I also remember the story of Akane Ho and the iconic image of her sitting and crying, and how she had lost her dog, and how things turned out;

Akane Ho embraces her dog Mei at an evacuation center in Natori near Sendai, Miyagi prefecture, Japan, Friday, March 18, 2011. Mei was returned to her today, seven days after she went missing following the earthquake triggered tsunami on March 11. 2011.

It was truly an amazing story.
