The wave that follows a tsunami, is one of love and kindness.

We have all witnessed the terrible destruction that has wreaked havoc on the beautiful island of Japan, first with a 8.9 magnitude earthquake and then the awful and powerful Tsunami that followed. The sheer power of mother nature tearing the island apart before an unstoppable wave washed across the country was terrifying to witness. All of our prayers today are for the people who are in Japan, or have loved ones in this area. But after the horrifying wave of the Tsunami struck, another wave began almost Instantaneously, online.

The social media channels leaped into action. From Facebook to Twitter, and so many more, people began sending messages, pictures and even videos from Japan asking for help and support. This is not CNN or BBC, but the people of the world broadcasting the real horrors of a tragedy, that is still unfolding as we speak.

Donation requests, calls for information about certain people, reports on surrounding areas as well as the information about Japan has been incredible. I have chosen this image today (Which came via Tumblr) to use in dedication of the people of the world in how they are an inspiration for the love they are showing right now for the people of Japan.

It’s why I love social media, not for the politics, not the business side but because it shows that when the world is rocked to it’s core, the people of the world can in one voice stand together and create a wave of love that will support Japan in it’s time of need. Today I am proud to be human and for those lost today, may god have mercy on their souls.

  1. Those who are left behind suffer the most…those who died are now in God’s precious hands in paradise. Please God comfort those left behind. 😦
