It seems the water just kept on coming with no end in sight. So sad

1. OMG!
I would not have trusted I was high enough and far enough away from that water ... and the last huge building floating away ... and the family the videographer found at the end ... words fail me. :cry:

5. And no sky ladders to climb either
With the worries of the Nuclear power plants its easy to whistle on past the Tsunami when in itself it was so devastating. :hi:

Before this is all said and done we may have to take in families from Japan into our homes. I'm sure we can find room for three or four of the victims.

7. I suspect Japan has changed forever
It is a catastrophe of unbelievable proportions and it is far from over.

9. Not in my vocabulary there isn't
I worry for the Japanese people as they have shown themselves to be good friends of ours these last 60 or so years.

10. There's a reason I stay smack dab in the middle of the prairie.
I need land around me. The sea is beautiful when calm but it is also a powerfully frightening place too.

12. The planet is angry
I think I understand now why I am always a bit anxious around the ocean.
