I was going to post news links, and stuff again.
But frankly, the world is in such a panic. Around 97% of Japan (talking about area, not population) is fine. People aren’t running through the streets screaming “THE END IS COMING!”. People are heading back to work. Children are going to school. When you walk down a street in Japan, you can hear the sound of people going about their business. Yes, there is some tension in the air. No one knows what’s going to happen. But you know what? That’s part of life everywhere. You know, there is a chance that something will happen at anytime, everywhere in the world.
Right now, it’s the same in Japan. There is a chance that things will get worse. But there is a chance they won’t. But they aren’t letting the fear get to them. They are moving forward, not standing still. And frankly, all these doomsdayers around the world are panicking more than most Japanese people (residents of north-eastern Japan excepted, as they are in such dire circumstances).
So I’m going to post a link to an article from someone who’s been born and raised in Japan, and her very wise words.
Please read it through, even if you’re not in Japan.
And with that, I leave you with this.
To my fellow bloggers, I’d highly suggest our regular update schedule.
