Venafochu: Lessons We Can Learn from Japan!

March 18, 2011

I’ve watched and marveled at the human spirit that has been exhibited in the aftermath of the horrendous natural disasters that hit Japan a week ago to this day. I can not even fathom what it means to live through a 9.0 Earthquake…let alone to experience what seemingly feels like a million aftershocks! And then…as a cherry on top, there was a Tsunami that swept away villages, cities, and even an airport!

Moreover, the world is waiting with baited breath hoping that radiation will not hurt or kill many more people. This was a natural disaster. One in which, as Rav Brazil alluded here that we must learn from. We simply can’t ignore this incident! Frankly, all the technology we have in this advanced world could not have prevented these tragic set of events.

In one week I have seen that humanity has been using the old conventional means as well as the new methods that we have via technology for GOOD and not for EVIL.

Below, in the first clip you will see how people used the good old fashioned human chain to preserve the life of the elderly as well as young children.

In the second clip you will view how people found their lost sibling through a Twitter stream!

We need to learn from this episode. We need to  learn from how people are collaborating. We need to remember  how valuable our world and our lives our. After all, in one second EVERYTHING can be venafochu!
