It will take a long time for things to get back to normal - if ever. So very sad for the loss of life.

One town it stated had lost at least 10,000 of it's 17,000 residents. I could not imagine everything and perhaps everyone I had ever known gone in one instant. The school that you went to, perhaps all the school chums you knew gone, the supermarket you bought your food at, the same cashiers face no more, your place of worship, the cemetary you laid flowers for your ancestors, the park that you walked through, every home that you had gone inside of, perhaps your entire family, all of your friends, basically all you knew and all or many of those you loved. For some who survived, they may wish they had not. It takes my breath away when I even begin to try and wrap my mind around this enormous loss.

Architect of a new dawn

Humanity, entity of the universe,
glorious fragment of God, wire of energy fed with
the infinite love of the Prince of Light.

The evolved humanity will be the architect
of a new dawn and the smile of God

The divinity of humanity reflects
in the eyes of innocent children, in the look of light,
love and peace of wises, in the flourished meadows of truth
in the born day that smiles at the world.

Humanity, rainbow of auras,
which pulse of green, electric blue,
and orange waterfalls, the colour of illumination.

Humanity, the architect of a new dawn
flourished of hope.

Life, a hourglass that lets slowly slipping the gold
energy of knowledge and that measures
over time the experience flowing
between the wings of wind, at the tolls
of the Divine Heart.

Humanity, anchored to the great earth sea,
at the end of time will fly free between the planets
of the revelation of the infinite Universe
and reach the great energy of love.

Humanity, architect of a new dawn
flourished of hope.

All of us are stunned. We hug each other more and appreciate the small graces. Something as simple as a cup of tea is a great gift, and we need to remember that.

These tears I shed in no way helps the people of this tragedy but somehow I want my prayers for them to reach whatever God may still be listening and help these people out of this horrible, unbelievable, overwhelming disaster and save them from any nuclear meltdown....this just can't be happening, but I know it is. God save those in Japan. God save japan.

Unfortunately nature strikes all without discrimination,, even developed nations cannot prepare themselves sufficiently for natures processes.. I wish the Japanese well and courage and faith to endure this great tribulations- i know that they will bear the scars of this trauma for a very long time..

I cannot even begin to imagine what the people of Japan have been going through. Terrorized, traumatized, loss of loved ones and friends, loss of homes, very little food and water, no real warmth except maybe a blanket and a floor to sleep on. Right now no real way to think of the future. My heart is hurting for all of them. God grant them courage and their faith to endure.
Cal, I would like to thank you for bringing these stories to us!
