Japan, three months after...

Safely south in Osaka, away from the daily reminders of the aftermath of the earthquake/tsunami of March, sometimes it seems like it was just a bad dream.

Here is the reality and recovery of Tohoku, three months after. I think the pictures are quite remarkable, despite still being far away from a full recovery.

I'm so proud to live in Japan after seeing how everything was handled with such dignity and strength.

I just posted these as well. Really amazing. I've been up to Ishinomaki a few times to help out. It looks a little better each time we go. Considering the scale of the disaster, the progress really is amazing. The Japanese really know how to work together as a group when things need to be done.

I am consistently amazed at how well Japan has handled the natural disaster, and my respect for the country and its people has grown. Even during all of the aftershocks, blackouts, and radiation danger, chaos was completely avoided, citizens made sure to conserve energy, and everyone seemed to act as calmly as possible. Japan is a prime example of how any society should go about acting in times of trouble. I'm really happy to see that everything is moving forward despite the recent hardship.
