After the terrible earthquake and tsunami that hit Japan here are some things the world should learn from them. 10 things to learn from Japan.

THE CALM: Not a single visual of chest-beating or wild grief. Sorrow itself has been elevated.

THE DIGNITY: Disciplined queues for water and groceries. Not a rough word or a crude gesture.

THE ABILITY: The incredible architects, for instance. Buildings swayed but didn’t fall.

THE GRACE: People bought only what they needed for the present, so everybody could get something.

THE ORDER: No looting in shops. No honking and no overtaking on the roads. Just understanding.

THE SACRIFICE: Fifty workers stayed back to pump sea water in the N-reactors. How will they ever be repaid?

THE TENDERNESS: Restaurants cut prices. An unguarded ATM is left alone. The strong cared for the weak.

THE TRAINING: The old and the children, everyone knew exactly what to do. And they did just that.

THE MEDIA: They showed magnificent restraint in the bulletins. No silly reporters. Only calm reportage.

THE CONSCIENCE: When the power went off in a store, people put things back on the shelves and left quietly.

Sun rises in the East!!
