But the way I see it, it's a natural disaster, and shit like this happens all the time. The earthquake and tsunami failed to either surprise me hoặc create anything thêm than a passing pang of sympathy.
I think people are making too big a deal of it, honestly. Not, I mean, in like, newspapers hoặc on news shows, but people. Actual people. There are many people who are absolutely freaking out and telling everyone to pray for Nhật Bản and saying things like "OMG I was crying for hours!" hoặc "THE END IS NEAR!!!!!!!!!!!" Like, no, it's not the end of the world. This was a natural disaster, people. It's happened before and it will happen again.
The whole thing beginning to get on my nerves. -_-
Ever since I was very young, Nhật Bản has been somewhere I'v wanted to go. But ever since I started a higher level of the grade system, it only seemed like a tiny shimmer in the distance. A tiny thread suspended above that if I was able to grab ahold of, I could leave the con chuột hole called America. I hate it here.
When the news of the earthquake terrorizing Nhật Bản reached me, I felt like someone had slapped me in the face. "Get out of your fantasy!" they shouted. "Japan is on the other side of the world, they speak another language. You'll never survive there, you'll never reach there." The tsunamis and aftershocks were whirlwinds of devastation tearing through my wonderland I just barely see, but now the soft glow is gone. Radiation is creeping along the streets, houses are destroyed. People are alone and crying, and the feeling is gone. I used to be able to look out the window of the classroom and say to myself, "It will all be over, and you'll be able to leave."
I wish (not pray, I don't pray. non religious. no các câu hỏi asked) that they don't have any thêm problems. Also I hope that they get all the help they can. The other countries that were effected, I hope bạn the best. We need to help other countries, too.
I think it's terrible what happened, and I can see this becoming such a travesty for the Japanese. I wish them the greatest of luck with reconstructing their country and pulling their lives back together. :)
I actually heard that fifty other countries received warnings about thêm tsunamis striking them.
Not to mention, a lot of natural disasters have occured lately. :/ I'm pretty sure the earthquake in Haiti didn't happen too long ago, and that one tsunami that struck India (correct on country)? Although I doubt it's because the end of the world is near, as most people state for an explanation. -_-
It's all over the news right now, and it was quite bad actually. But it's getting annoying right now. It was quite bad, yes, and even though I didn't cried, I got shocked and sad, but they are used to these kind of things (sometimes bad, sometimes worse). They are prepared for these things, thêm than any other country in the world, I guess. I don't see why everyone is like "Help Japan" hoặc "Pray for Japan". I do get it bạn like the country (and so do I), but seeing this everywhere all the time is.. annoying. If people really want to help it, it's not bởi praying hoặc bởi posting pictures on the internet that everything works out (to some people maybe, but I'm talking from my point of view), it's bởi taking action there hoặc donating to organizations.
I actually feel like many people who are being like this, aren't helping at all, but that's just me ._.
I do truly feel horrible for what happened, I honestly do. But, I don't know, I just don't feel that deeply moved. it might be my enclosed American mind, but this isn't the worst disaster in the world. There have been worse incidents (this is only the 5th in the world and yes, that is really awful). My family (my mom) is definitely praying for them and I do hope that people don't get turned into mutants, but it just seems like it's getting too much hype.
its sucks that innocent children and parents were killed..weather is probably the #1 killer it makes me sad cause im here eating,having fun,BREATHING,spending money on stuff i dont even need.. i feel like crap cause people there and in africa and hatits are starving and dieing....
I agree with r-pattz. Shit happens, and people themselves are making way to big of a deal out of it. It is a tragedy, though. I am hoping for the better, and I have doanated. Added note: If this had happened in America, people would laugh and say, "They deserved it!".
It's just so upsetting, because crap like this happens all the time. To be honest, I don't know why people are making a bigger deal out of this one than the others, ten lives are as precious as a city's. But I just pray for Japan, like I pray for all incidents like this, and I'm just grateful that I'm an toàn, két an toàn over here in england.
It sucks though, the world has to be like this. they're innocent people. the whole state of our world is horrible. :'( I'm not looking phía trước, chuyển tiếp to seeing how this world is going to be in my future, it's not looking good. I just wish it wouldn't happen, but we can't do any thêm than we're doing.
It happens. Sure, I was born their but I'm not going too cry about it. People are doing the best they can to help the people in Japan. I'm thinking this is "old news" already but people are still trying to get saved out there, still. :P
