This Is What Despair Looks Like

This is probably as close as you come in a single picture. If it doesn’t make you consider donating to Red Cross, I don’t know what will.

There are some people — comparatively few, I hope — who rejoice in the recent tragedy, claiming it is some sort of “karmic retribution” for Pearl Harbor. I feel truly sorry for them and their unspeakable ignorance. (I wonder what they think the events that unfolded on August 6th and August 9th, 1945 in Hiroshima and Nagasaki were, and if they’ve forgotten this.)

What’s more, while more than ten thousand people are missing, and millions more are threatened by a possible meltdown at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant, some worry most about their supply of fresh sushi. Disgusting.

Japan was beaten senseless by Nature. Its people “deserved” none of it. Now, they deserve nothing but help.

Help Japan.
