Japan and The Tsunami

Tsunami, (Japanese: 津波, lit. "harbor wave";[1] Japanese pronunciation: [tsɯnami]; English pronunciation: /tsuːˈnɑːmi/ tsoo-NAH-mee or /suːˈnɑːmi/ soo-NAH-mee[2]) is a series of water waves (also called a tsunami wave train[3]) caused by the displacement of a large volume of a body of water, usually an ocean, though it can occur in large lakes. (from wikipedia.com)

Japan is country that has the most tsunami in the world. The name tsunami is even from the Japanese language. This week, at 11 March 2011, after a big earthquake (8.9SR), the tsunami hits Japan. In just a few hours, it hits the land of Sendai. See how many life's that is destroyed? It was too big to handle. We disaster comes like this, don't we feel like we are so small and fragile as a being in this earth?
