Like many people I watched this unfold on TV, and watched in horror at the devastation it caused.
Only last month we seen how Christchurch in New Zealand suffered a devastating quake, and now Japan has to suffer this.
It's very very sad, and I count how lucky I am to not be part of this disaster.
As humans we think we have the power to shape our own destiny, and nothing can stand in our way. Nature on the other hand, knows better.
One can only hope that the death toll in Japan does not rise to much from the terrible loss already, and hope that these poor people left with nothing, can get their lives back together quickly.
