The families and friends of 26 missing Japanese students are coming to the terms with the prospect that they may never return alive!
The tragedy unfolding in New Zealand and the fate of the students many of whom were on their first trip abroad, has received wide spread media attention in japan a country with first hand knowledge of the death and destruction that ensues when the earth shifts violently without warning!
Death can be quick and silent ..or long and agonizing..Earthquakes are not prejudice!
Authorities have 23 unidentified bodies recovered from the site bringing the death toll to 47!
Japanese rescue workers have said that as many as 120 people are still trapped in the collapsed CTV building in Christchurch.
We as people on this planet must accept the things we can not change and the wisdom to adapt and co-exist among natures wrath!
The National Earthquake information Center,U.S Geological survey estimates globally the following information...
Estimated deaths from Earthquakes in 2000-231
The numbers speak for themselves..Mother nature in the form of an Earthquake....Can not be ignored...she can only be ..RESPECTED!
sincerely..Rondon( and may those who lost their lives... rest in eternal peace!)
