The tragedy is enormous and there is much to be sad for with this disaster that has come to Japan.
The survivors and tales of rescue are hope in the midst of it all. The story and picture in the Sun newspaper showing the Japanese navy rowing up to a senior citizen, a gentleman who had been washed 15 km's out to sea was remarkable. They found him floating on a piece of building or house wall or piece of roof.
Anyways the man seems defiant and strong willed. Ready to go many more days if necessary, stick in hand planted beside him and a material on his head covering him from the sun. Hope there are hundreds more of these miracles.
