It’s taking Japan a while to get over the effects of the March tsunami. This photo was taken on 7 September. It shows the fishing trawler Kiotoku Maru, still beached in Kesennuma (Miyagi Prefecture. Tōhoku Region). It’s going to take a long time to recover. You simply don’t wave a wand and say, “It’s all over”… only lunatics do that.
A scene in Rikuzentakata (Iwate Prefecture. Tōhoku Region) JAPAN… the tsunami hit on 11 March, some six months ago… this image proves that there’s MUCH more work in front of the Japanese… I’ll confide that they’ll do it, and with no fanfare or American-style boasting, either!
You do NOT recover from any disaster, whether natural or man-made, by just waving a wand. Japan is still rebuilding after the tsunami… and it’ll be doing so for some time yet. The churchman who bloviated, “It’s all over” was vacuous, disingenuous, and fatuous. As I said, you don’t recover from ANY disaster, whether natural OR man-made, by just wishing it away. Reality has a way of dealing with such people, doesn’t it?
