I have been relatively quiet about the earthquake and tsunami that hit Japan. It is just difficult to watch such devastation and feeling so helpless, unable to do something to help them, aside from donating money.

Yet in the face of such adversity, the Japanese have my total admiration, and I am sure - the rest of the world's at how they handled the aftermath. Stories are pouring in through twitter about how people are calm and orderly. Shoes are removed at doorways before entering homes. Cars are not beeping at each other at 10 hour traffic jams. People are gracious and giving way, donating food, young teenagers are running around to help those in need. No looting or mayhem. This is a people of true grit, true civilization. You can read more stories that encourage here.

Japan, we are all praying for you.
