Dear EC friends,
As you all know that a super earthquake of record-breaking 8.9 magnitude on Richter Scale has hit off the Japan triggering a devastating tsunami that has caused many casualties and extensive damage in north-eastern Japan.
The quake sparked fire in many buildings in Tokyo killing many people.
And there have been powerful after-shocks. After-shocks may hit the area for several months because of the very high magnitude of quake on Richter scale.
So I appeal everybody to offer their condolences to Japanese people on such a great loss of many lives caused by a massive earth-quake and tsunami which is said to be the most powerful in last 140 years.
It has been said that this earth quake was bigger in magnitude on Richter Scale than the one which hit the Japan in 1923 and wiped away the capital city of Tokyo completely.
Latest news says that a ship carrying about 100 people has been swept away by tsunami. There is no news from people who were on ship. May God protect them.
Perhaps they are not
stars in the sky,
but rather openings
in heaven where the
love of our lost ones
and shines down
to let us know they are happy.
In this time of loss!
Please accept our sincere condolences in this time of sorrow!
