I Salute You Japan

I see
It’s hunger
It’s cold
It’s homelessness
It’s radiation

I feel
It’s tough
It’s rough
It’s uncertain
It’s Hell

I watch
You’re calm
You’re brave
You’re patient
You’re resilient

I know
You’ll survive
You’ll overcome
You’ll beat it
You’ll thrive

Yes I know,
You’ll thrive
Once again.
Yes you will.

I salute  the mothers, the children, the old and the young men of Japan.
The whole world and I stand with you in this hour of despair.
I wish we learn the patience and perseverance from you, my friends.

Tears rolled down when I heard say a  BBC correspondent from Japan:

“When the food is distributed they patiently wait. All they get is half  a bowl of rice. Nobody complains. Incredible calm. This is First World Japan.”

10 things to learn from Japan

by Ahang Rabbani on Sunday, March 27, 2011 at 6:27am

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 architects, 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 report Only calm reportage.

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