The recent March 11, 2011 Japan earthquake and the devastating tsunami it brought made a mark in our history. The high waves brought by the tsunami changed the landscape of Japan forever; the waters took everything in its path, houses, metal buildings, even ships and airplanes. It was so mighty that no human forces can stop it.

I was really humbled with what happened to Japan, and yet, the people remained resilient, calm and optimistic. In fact, when I was in Japan just a few weeks ago for a stopover, I couldn’t help but feel sorry and at the same time admire them for their courage and strength as a nation. They’ve been through this during the war times; I know they will get through this too.
