The very first pic you posted is of a search and rescue team retrieving a body no? If not, I apologise.

You got these pics from MSM did you not? And no, we don't need to see those images, they serve no purpose at all. They are the personal feelings and emotions of the people involved, so have some respect and don't be vouyeuristic. let them grieve in privacy.

Yes it is, I'm sorry about that, I totally didn't see the body. That is horrible, but once again, it is the nature of the "beast" and I'm talking about mother nature, not the devil.

Not really a picture as such but it speaks 9,500 words.
For the town of Minamleanriku.



【お知らせ】3月9日の地震による被害はございません (11.03.10) There is no damage due to the earthquake March 9th (11.03.10) Just before the wave.

Yes I know, we all know. I shall ask you a question, and please answer honestly.

Currently you are alive and well, but if for some reason you weren't, would you be happy for your body to be splashed around in the media, for no educational purposes, just for sheer voyeurism?

Likewise to the above question if you were no longer alive, would you be happy for pictures of your loved ones in dire distress and grief being splashed around in the media, for no educational purposes, just for sheer voyeurism?

If this was a war story, and people were trying to get the message across of the atrocities of war, I could see your point. However I fail to see the relevance in viewing such pictures here, as we all know what people must be going through there. Therefore is it right that we gawp at them?

I think the pictures of the wave speak far more words about trying to understand the nature of the beast, then gawping at the dead and distressed.

So again I ask, would you please remove those pictures of the dead and distressed out of respect of their memory and their feelings please.

I honestly wouldn't care if my body was posted online after I am dead, but I would care if pictures of my family members in distress were online. That is exactly why I help my family be prepared for disasters, man-made or otherwise. Thank you for posting.

I don't understand your reasoning. So you would not be happy about pictures of your family being online, but you are going to keep those pictures of those in distress up because you are getting your family ready for disasters?

Fair enough on "your body" statement, I can't argue with that as it would be a personal opionion I suppose, but it doesn't sit comfortably with me thinking about my own body being published in such a way. I also think you should think about the feelings of the loved ones of that body in your first pic. It could potentially be a loved one of many thousands of survivors from this incident...

We will have to agree to disagree. Where you see people suffering, I see people who are resilient.

Come on folks,respectfully to you both,it is inevitable that scenes of suffering will be depicted in such an event.
What I hope is that by showing these images of the reality of whats happening,some of us will decide to do something to help Japan.
Some of us will maybe donate money,or provide other ways to help.
This is the least we can do for our brothers and sisters in Japan IMO.
Thats what I am doing in my own small way.
And this is why:



We need to see these pictures,and show them to others,so that more help will get there faster IMO.

This video from a helicopter.
This is just one tiny area.
This is happening all over the north.

Very heartbreaking.

I'm a 35 year old man, but I don't mind telling you all...

I cried when I seen the kids in the boat being rescued by the Military. The look on those faces... A life without their parents, not knowing the extent of their plight... Heartbreaking. I'm even watering up thinking about it.

Do you ever think that maybe seeing pictures of real human emotion and DISTRESS will cause people around the world to take action? Yes, I personally would want my terrified face broadcast around the world if it would evoke an emotional response from someone 12,000 miles away and maybe bring them to donate/volunteer/whatever.

People on this forum are saying they were brought to tears by pictures and video from Japan...You don't really get that kind of reaction from headlines and articles.

It is one thing to just read about such devestation, but the pictures are profound and make a deep impression. They bring awareness and compassion to a deeper level. If they are too disturbing to some, don't look.

It is hard to sleep at night knowing that so many innocent people are suffering or have lost their very lives. We can offer our sympathy and prayers, donate or volenteer. We can keep these people in our hearts and thoughts and share in their grief. God Bless them all.

I think all pics need to be seen. It brings everyone back to reality of how vulnerable we really are and why we should be united as a species and not seperated by our minor differences.

In all reality, masking the truth has done nothing but put us on our own little pedestals in a dillusional world of false truths where we percieve ourselves better than everyone else.

If these pictures crush your heart and soul it's a reality check and it's good to know your still human.

I must say that I am very pleasantly surprised to not see bodies just hanging out of every pile of debri like back in 2004. Back then you could literally see them everywhere. I may be wrong however but I hope not.

That being said these pictures are unbelievable. it seems that when you absolutely positively have to destroy every freaking hing over night use a tsunami right? Jeez what a F^%&ing mess.
This is one of those "worst case scenarios" everyone talks about. I feel bad for the people there, some probably can't even find where their house used to be to attempt to recover some personal items. Is it cold there right now? I hope not.

from the look in some pictures it's like they did not even have time to leave with their cars.
they look has if they are still parked. did they all leave on foot?

What I want to know is are there any pictures of areas little affected from this? From what I have been seeing things are pretty hopless for this country. But maybe we are not getting the whole picture? I hope so. So don't forget to post happy pictures too!
