Learn from the Japanese after Tsunami !!!

10 things to learn from the Japanese after Tsunami !!!

1. THE CALM Not a single visual of chest-beating or wild grief. Sorrow itself has been elevated.

2. THE DIGNITY Disciplined queues for water and groceries. Not a rough word or a crude gesture.

3. THE ABILITY The incredible Engineering, for instance. Buildings swayed but didn’t fall.

4. THE GRACE People bought only what they needed for the present, so everybody could get something.

5. THE ORDER No looting in shops. No honking and no overtaking on the roads. Just understanding.

6. THE SACRIFICE Fifty workers stayed back to pump sea water in the N-reactors. How will they ever be repaid?

7. THE TENDERNESS Restaurants cut prices. An unguarded ATM is left alone. The strong cared for the weak.

8. THE TRAINING The old and the children, everyone knew exactly what to do. And they did just that.

9. THE MEDIA They showed magnificent restraint in the bulletins. No silly reporters. Only calm reportage.

10. THE CONSCIENCE When the power went off in a store, people put things back on the shelves and left quietly!

I salute to the Japanese people for they know....

Search a beautiful heart not a beautiful face. Beautiful things are not always good but good things are always beautiful.

i agree with you on this post Mr. Foo. I also salute them with their honesty, confidence and strength despite what happened to them, they can still smile and stand up to tell the world that this too shall pass :)
