Along with the earthquake came a thirty foot tsunami drowning many people and covering cities in floods of filthy water infested with death, nuclear substances, and so much more. Cities are covered in water and cars have sunk into water flooding the streets yards deep. Destruction and depression have struck deeply in the hearts of many,


many Japanese people. Aftershocks are happening more and more and we are having help sent back and forth trying to feed, clothe and give medical attention to those of the people who need it more then we know.


The Recovery of Japan The Earthquake in Japan didn’t affect only the Japanese people it affected the hearts of people all over, relatives, friends and admirers of the Japanese people are all aching for the Japanese families and friends of lost loved ones.

Japan is thought to be slowly recovering on it’s own with that problem. The United States are helping to slowly recover lost people by sending search and rescue teams. Fire crews, rescue teams and volunteers are now searching through and clearing out the wreckage left from the tsunami. British search and rescue teams of about sixty to seventy people arrived to help with the search and rescue, clean up, and recovery of the Japanese people. Japanese


workers are wearing protective suits scanning man women and children for radiation poisoning and things of the sort. Nurses and doctors of all sorts from all different countries and states are being sent to Japan to help with medical injuries and help the people prepare to live in that condition.
