I watched the news last night and in a passing comment the news anchor made note of hundreds of earthquake-and-tsunami-weary japanese citizens lining up two-by-two at a bus stop, patiently waiting for the lone bus that could take them into the bigger cities of Japan (and away from the wreckage on northeastern coast).
Inevitably, the new anchor moved on to more dramatic and depressing things, but that comment really stuck with me. These people who have no worldly possessions, people who have lost everything, could be panicking, looting, and god knows what else, but they are choosing to line up outside clinics, shelters, and even bus stops, seemingly resolute in their desire to recover as a community instead of bowing to their individual despair.
I find that inspiring…
What can I say – you have painted us larger than life!
We do the best we can for the ones we love – and you are one of our loved ones.
Thanks for the follow Bram! I look forward to hopefully connecting with you at Wanderlust in Trembant!
