    Incredible Japan!

    1. THE CALM
    Not a single visual of chest-beating or wild grief. Sorrow itself has been elevated.
    2. THE DIGNITY
    Disciplined queues for water and groceries. Not a rough word or a crude gesture. Their patience is admirable and praiseworthy.
    3. THE ABILITY
    The incredible architects, for instance. Buildings swayed but didn’t fall.

    4. THE GRACE (Selflessness)

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

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

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

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

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

    9. THE MEDIA
    They showed magnificent restraint in the bulletins. No silly reporters. Only calm reportage. Most of all – NO POLITICIANS TRYING TO GET CHEAP MILEAGE. (politicians from other countries- are you listening?)

    10. THE CONSCIENCE
    When the power went off in a store, people put things back on the shelves and left quietly.
    With their country in the midst of a colossal disaster - The Japanese citizens can teach plenty of lessons to the world
