Tsunami disaster

The horror of the tsunami that is devastating Japan and killing so many is mind-numbing. Watching videos of gigantic waves crashing through entire towns, swallowing up buildings, cars, anything that lies on their inexorable path of destruction, is frightening. As if nature is pounding into us our insignificance and powerlessness, we, human mortals, against its fury.

My heart goes to all the people whose lives, homes, worlds were snatched away so suddenly, and to all those who have lost their loved ones and will need tremendous courage and fortitude to start all over again, and rebuild.
