I am speechless by that video. Just the raw power of those waves puts into perspective how small we insects really are, as we try to tame the wilds of
this speck of dust called Earth. It ought to humble any man or woman on a power trip. We are mere guests, and at anytime the welcome mat can be pulled
out from under us.
Unfortunately, this is probably not even the worse of what the Earth has in store for us? I recall Katrina, the Haiti Quake, the Pakistani Floods,
Chilean Quake, and the Tsunami of 2004 which were all serious affairs in their own right. However, in all my years on this earth I have yet to see
anything like this. One just has to gasp and sit in stoic silence at what nature is capable of on a bad day.
Moreover, with all the casualties, damage to infrastructure, and the on-going nuclear emergency; the world needs to stand with Japan during its
darkest hour. Put aside the differences and prejudices of the past for one moment, and look at this disaster as shock to the system. Over night Japan
may have been reduced from a first world nation to the third world? If this is not the costliest disaster in human history, it ought to be very high
on the list.
