10 THINGS TO LEARN FROM JAPAN


In the face of their recent adversities, there was a lot to learn from Japan.

1. THE CALM

Not a single visual of chest-beating or wild grief. Sorrow itself has been elevated.

2. THE DIGNITY

Disciplined queues for water and groceries. Not a rough word or a crude gesture. Their patience is admirable and praiseworthy.

3.  THE ABILITY

The incredible architects, for instance.  Buildings swayed but didnt fall.

4. THE GRACE (Selflessness)

People bought only what they needed for the present, so everybody could get something.

5. THE ORDER

No looting in shops. No honking and no overtaking on the roads.  Just understanding.

6. THE SACRIFICE

Fifty workers stayed back to pump sea water in the N-reactors. How will they ever be repaid?

7. THE TENDERNESS

Restaurants cut prices. An unguarded ATM is left alone. The strong cared for the weak.

8. THE TRAINING

The old and the children, everyone knew exactly what to do. And they did just that.

9. THE MEDIA

They showed magnificent restraint in the bulletins. No silly reporters. Only calm reportage. Most of all NO POLITICIANS TRYING TO GET CHEAP MILEAGE OUT OF THE TRAGEDY. (Politicians from other countries- are you listening?)

10.  THE CONSCIENCE

When the power went off in a store, people put things back on the shelves and left quietly.  


With their country in the midst of a colossal disaster - The Japanese citizens can teach plenty of lessons to the world
