Thoughts on Japan's Earthquake

In case you woke up this morning and never turn on your TV or check the news on the internet, You should probably read this...

TOKYO — A magnitude 8.9 earthquake — the biggest in modern Japanese history — slammed Japan's northeastern coast Friday, unleashing a 13-foot  tsunami that swept boats, cars, buildings and tons of debris miles inland and prompting a "nuclear emergency."

I hardly know what to say other than no matter where you live it seems you are NOT SAFE from mother nature. Natural Disasters can strike anywhere at any time. PERIOD. I think we all learned that from What happened with Hurricane Katrina. 

Which brings me to a point that may anger some of you or may make some of you think. Although lives were lost, and people, innocent people: mothers, brothers, wives, babies etc etc lives are taken by God, what would our population look like if we didn't have these things happen to us? Of course I feel bad that this happened. It happens pretty much everywhere at any time. But, the reality is, can you imagine if these things didn't happen to us how crowded our earth would really be? Don't Judge. Just think. As Forrest would say, "that's all I have to say about that."

On a lighter note.......
