10 Things To Learn From Japan

  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 the weak.

  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 silly reporters. Only calm reportage.

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

  1. There is one more thing to learn from Japanese, they are very health conscious. According to some sources more than half of the population in Japan drink warm water to stay slim and healthy.
