I'm sure you know by now the devastation that has and is still hitting Japan. If you have not heard, a shocking 8.9 magnitude earthquake rocked this island nation. This in turn cause a tsunami to pound the shorelines and cause enormous destruction. Not only has Japan had to face the tsunami, a tsunami warning was sent out to the entire Pacific Basin. Even in Tofino which is on the west side of Vancouver Island, a weather watch was posted.
I watched a few videos of the tsunami and it's destructive path. The quake and the tsunami so incredibly powerful. Mother nature makes us look so small in comparison to her strengths.
I reach out and pray for Japan and all the nations affected by the tsunami. For those that have family and friends in Japan, I pray they are safe.
Angela mentioned how events such as these put things in perspective for us. The guy who cut you off this morning, your boss pissing you off, the kids making a mess...these are all so small in the scheme of things.
Now I don't usually bring up spirituality on my little blog but I feel the need to say something.
I believe that good can come from this suffering Japan is facing. I believe they can come together as a nation and help those in need. I believe they can rebuild and replace the material things that were lost. I believe those that passed away will not be forgotten. I believe it helps the world to be more compassionate. I believe it unites the world and shows love for a nation that we most likely don't even think about.
I know I don't need to say it but this is my little space to say what's on my mind. If you don't agree that's fine and I respect that but please don't hate, okay?
Have a great weekend everyone! I'm off to study and then write my exam on Sunday. Wish me luck:)
