    Thank you for sharing this documentary. I feel pain, my heart aches and cannot hold tears anymore as tsunami and earthquake also hit my country (Indonesia) many times and I somehow recall many things on my mind. My respect goes to how people of Japan try to save others during this devestation esp the emergency workers. It is not your fault at all for the lives you cannot save, please don't blame yourself. You have save lots of people by warning them until the end.

    Almost a million earthquakes occur in one year. Of these, a large earthquake occurs every two weeks under the sea.

    Teach us, how fragile life is, no one knows about birth and death, but every livingthing deserves life, and right to live, we have no right to take life, which has life, whereas we should give life or save and protect life~!

  • Vandana J Kuusinen

    Omg, these are the very destructive power of Nature...it can just consume as within seconds, we should pray should never happen again, but to control and tame Mother Nature is just impossible...it’s scale of destruction should never be underestimated...!! My heartfelt condolences to people who lost their loved ones and near dear ones...may God give them strength to live on...treacherous sea waves, can bring devastation at incomprehensible scale...O Lord!!

    They need to make cars that float. But more importantly they, and all nations, need to build only Tower cities connected to maglev Trains worldwide, by ending capitalism, wage slavery, because that’s a temporary income. When we say all people own all things and when they start building T&T they can all work part time 20 or 10 hours a week.

    Japan needs Jesus Christ. Japanese people, start to read your bible for more spiritual infos. He said if nobody will praise or worship Him, the natures will do this.

    Luke 19:37-40 King James Version (KJV)
    37 And when he was come nigh, even now at the descent of the mount of Olives, the whole multitude of the disciples began to rejoice and praise God with a loud voice for all the mighty works that they had seen;

    38 Saying, Blessed be the King that cometh in the name of the Lord: peace in heaven, and glory in the highest.

    39 And some of the Pharisees from among the multitude said unto him, Master, rebuke thy disciples.

    40 And he answered and said unto them, I tell you that, if these should hold their peace, the stones would immediately cry out.
    Psalm 107:29 He maketh the storm a calm, so that the waves thereof are still.

    Luke 8:23-25
    23 But as they sailed he fell asleep: and there came down a storm of wind on the lake; and they were filled with water, and were in jeopardy.

    24 And they came to him, and awoke him, saying, Master, master, we perish. Then he arose, and rebuked the wind and the raging of the water: and they ceased, and there was a calm.

    25 And he said unto them, Where is your faith? And they being afraid wondered, saying one to another, What manner of man is this! for he commandeth even the winds and water, and they obey him.
    Genesis 18:20 And the Lord said, Because the cry of Sodom and Gomorrah is great, and because their sin is very grievous;
    21 I will go down now, and see whether they have done altogether according to the cry of it, which is come unto me; and if not, I will know.

    22 And the men turned their faces from thence, and went toward Sodom: but Abraham stood yet before the Lord.
    23 And Abraham drew near, and said, Wilt thou also destroy the righteous with the wicked?

    24 Peradventure there be fifty righteous within the city: wilt thou also destroy and not spare the place for the fifty righteous that are therein?

    25 That be far from thee to do after this manner, to slay the righteous with the wicked: and that the righteous should be as the wicked, that be far from thee: Shall not the Judge of all the earth do right?

    26 And the Lord said, If I find in Sodom fifty righteous within the city, then I will spare all the place for their sakes.

    27 And Abraham answered and said, Behold now, I have taken upon me to speak unto the Lord, which am but dust and ashes:

    28 Peradventure there shall lack five of the fifty righteous: wilt thou destroy all the city for lack of five? And he said, If I find there forty and five, I will not destroy it.

    29 And he spake unto him yet again, and said, Peradventure there shall be forty found there. And he said, I will not do it for forty's sake.

    30 And he said unto him, Oh let not the Lord be angry, and I will speak: Peradventure there shall thirty be found there. And he said, I will not do it, if I find thirty there.

    31 And he said, Behold now, I have taken upon me to speak unto the Lord: Peradventure there shall be twenty found there. And he said, I will not destroy it for twenty's sake.

    32 And he said, Oh let not the Lord be angry, and I will speak yet but this once: Peradventure ten shall be found there. And he said, I will not destroy it for ten's sake.

    33 And the Lord went his way, as soon as he had left communing with Abraham: and Abraham returned unto his place.
    2 Peter 3:10-16 King James Version (KJV)
    10 But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up.

    11 Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of persons ought ye to be in all holy conversation and godliness,

    12 Looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of God, wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat?

    13 Nevertheless we, according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness.

    14 Wherefore, beloved, seeing that ye look for such things, be diligent that ye may be found of him in peace, without spot, and blameless.

    15 And account that the longsuffering of our Lord is salvation; even as our beloved brother Paul also according to the wisdom given unto him hath written unto you;

    16 As also in all his epistles, speaking in them of these things; in which are some things hard to be understood, which they that are unlearned and unstable wrest, as they do also the other scriptures, unto their own destruction.
    1 Thessalonians 4:11-17
    11 And that ye study to be quiet, and to do your own business, and to work with your own hands, as we commanded you;

    12 That ye may walk honestly toward them that are without, and that ye may have lack of nothing.

    13 But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them which are asleep, that ye sorrow not, even as others which have no hope.

    14 For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him.

    15 For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep.

    16 For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:

    17 Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.

    Matthew 24:40-44 King James Version (KJV)
    40 Then shall two be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left.

    41 Two women shall be grinding at the mill; the one shall be taken, and the other left.

    42 Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come.

    43 But know this, that if the goodman of the house had known in what watch the thief would come, he would have watched, and would not have suffered his house to be broken up.

    44 Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh.

    The sad part was that they were warned they have time to run and they took it lightly because they thought this would never happen here or the levee will protect us!many more people could have been saved if listen to the warnings and ran for higher grounds!! This is so terrible!!
