Disaster in Japan

Hey guys.. sorry I haven’t been blogging for quite sometime now. I’m kinda busy. Okay I feel inspired in blogging today because of what happened to Japan yesterday. It was so scary, devastating and unexpected. What happened to Japan I think was very extreme compared on the previous earthquakes that hit the said country. Japan is immune with tsunamis but the earthquake and tsunami that hit the country yesterday was sick!!! It was a 23 foot tsunami.  

Most countries nowadays experience minimal earthquakes. Yesterday, according to CNN, Japan was attacked by an 8.9 magnitude earthquake followed by an enormous tsunami. News shows the actual video where you can see how the earthquake happened and how the tsunami swept the entire city.

It was really scary, yesterday when I watched the news; it looks like it came from a movie, but no. This is happening for real.
You can read this news post by Malcolm Foster so you can get a better picture of what happened yesterday.

The entire city was damaged, all cell cites were broken, cars, houses, trees were everywhere. Hundreds of people died. All means of living were destroyed, rice fields and farms. In just a matter of two minutes, most of the lives were shattered. It was really scary at the same time sad. Most part of the world are experiencing terrorism, in Libya, Egypt, Iraq etc.. and now tsunamis and earthquakes? My mother is in Japan too, I don’t know if she’s fine but I hope she is. We lost contact to her years ago. But may God be with her always.

This should serve as a wake up call to everyone, if you’re affected or not. Let’s think of ways to protect our country. We can never tell what will happen next. We maybe safe for now but we cannot hold the future.

My thoughts and prayers go out for those who were affected by this calamity. Hope all of you are safe and warm. Wherever you are, may God be with you always.

This has been Abby saying I heart you.

much love,
