We are only into March, and yet another country has suffered a natural disaster. Northern Japan experienced an earthquake and subsequent tsunami. HH and I had actually turned on the TV on Friday night in preparation to watch the news when the details of the tragedy were being relayed before us on the screen. We were gobsmacked by the unfolding disaster. Again, it is unfathomable that such devastation can be wrought so quickly and effortlessly by Mother Nature.
Just watching the wall of water descending on seaside Japanese towns and seeing houses swept inland, sometimes completely intact, was gut wrenching. Cars just swept along, boats and ships tossed around with less effort than a child in bathtub. It was all very surreal.
Again, our thoughts are with another country and the people affected by this disaster.
