Conditions of Use
Who said that suffering is not part of life??? He Japanese citizens were starting a normal, ordinary day. Suddenly the ground started shaking viciously from left to right and right to left. It was an earthquake!!!! People were running, praying, and screaming for help. The magnitude of the earthquake was 8.9 on the Rickter Scale. There were 30 aftershocks. At that point there was no land it was a TSUNAMI!!! 10m high! The tsunami was like a starving monster that had swallowed many lives. Over 10,000 people had been missing in just a few minutes. In addition to all of that there was a threat that the main nuclear plant was going to explode sending radiation across all of Japan and maybe other countries neighboring it.
Even though, I could empathize with the people and it was a heart breaking event. Many children and little babies had lost their parents or the opposite way. They were left alone, homeless, nowhere to go.
This is part of life. You may face many disasters like this. The earthquake in Japan was extremely destructive and it showed that when nature is angry it will cause something destructive. It was the most powerful earthquake that Japan has ever witnessed.
