Japan Tsunami & Earthquake
I have heard from friends in Japan how people are paying for food and water in supermarkets even if there are no shopkeepers around to take payment. That, for me, shows the level of dignity, respect and selflessness of the Japanese people. As soon as the waters receded, people (police, rescue teams and even the general public) were immediately mucking in there, searching for survivors, with almost no regards for their personal safety. It warms my heart to know there are such people on this planet. Having been to Japan myself, I know full well that they will recover as quickly, if not quicker, than anybody else would in such a situation. They are polite, hard-working, industrious citizens, humble enough to appreciate what they have in life, and always willing to help their fellow man. It's our turn now to help them.
We hope to see you at Ladybirds tomorrow.
