The recent events in Japan has shocked and worried people all over the world. Raw footage and images of the earthquakes and tsunamis have rocked many a strong heart in the past days. It’s been a couple of days since nature unleashed its forces in Japan, and the impact may have lessened for some in other parts of the world. Sad to say, it does happen that after the initial shock, people who are safe may tend to “forget” and live their lives as usual. Understandable, but it does not have to be that way.
More than 2,000 people have died or are missing since the first earthquake struck. Countless people have been forced away from their homes. Even more people do not have things that we take for granted. Many are also at risk of exposure to radiation. Governments, companies and individuals from all over the world have been joining together in a massive relief effort- also globally recognized corporations in Japan itself such as Sony, Toyota and Ajinomoto have been hugely generous- but more is needed.
