10 Things To Learn From The People Of Japan Following Recent Events

1. THE CALM

Not a single visual of chest-beating or wild grief. Sorrow itself has been elevated.

2. THE DIGNITY

Disciplined queues for water and groceries. Not a rough word or a crude gesture.

3. THE ABILITY

The incredible architects, for instance. Buildings swayed but didn’t fall.

4. THE GRACE

People bought only what they needed for the present, so everybody could get something.

5. THE ORDER

No looting in shops. No honking and no overtaking on the roads. Just understanding.

6. THE SACRIFICE

Fifty workers stayed back to pump sea water in the N-reactors. How will they ever be repaid?

7. THE TENDERNESS

Restaurants cut prices. An unguarded ATM is left alone. The strong cared for all concerns.

8. THE TRAINING

The old and the children, everyone knew exactly what to do. And they did just that.

9. THE MEDIA

They showed magnificent restraint in the bulletins. No sensationalizing. Only calm reportage.

10. THE CONSCIENCE

When the power went off in a store, people put things back on the shelves and left quietly.

This makes the nation & its people great.

    @ Shammi – Hi, where have you been my friend? Your comment have come after long time. Blog and I have been missing you. Thank you for coming by 🙂

    @ Pinky – Yes, that’s why despite Japan being small country by land, has been always very rich financially. I am sure they will come back, because they have discipline and values 🙂

    @ Amisha – True, this is the kind of attitude people needs to learn in other countries, and unlearn what they know till now. Definitely they will surely be back sooner then expected 🙂
