Everyday, the situation seems to be getting worse.
There are tens of thousands of people still missing.
Few hundred thousand people are living in emergency shelters,
with little food and poor medical treatment.
Don't know what will become of the nuclear reactors in Fukushima,
the situation remains grim.
The people in Tokyo are calm, as if what is happening few hundred miles away
relates to events of another world.
Few changes to our everyday life in Tokyo are:
less stock in the supermarkets primarily due to people unnecessarily stocking up
their own stock; the gas stations are out of stock partly due to the same
reason and partly due to the fire which occurred in the refinery plant in Chiba;
some cities in the Kanto region are experiencing "planned" blackouts as one of the
measures undertaken by TEPCO (i.e. the electricity company, which also runs
the nuclear power plant) to save electricity. Other than this,
people are carrying out their business as usual.
Oh how fragile our life is.
Where was I when similar disasters happened around the world?
"...A new commandment I give to you,
that you love one another: just as I have loved you,
you also are to love one another.
By this all people will know that you are my disciples,
if you have love for one another."
What will I learn from this?
