10 Things To Learn From Japan…

In the aftermath of the massive earthquake, tsunami and nuclear meltdown, here’s ten things to learn from Japan:

1. The Calm. No visuals of wild grief. Sorrow itself has been elevated.

2. The Dignity. Disciplined queues for water and groceries. Not a rough word or a crude gesture.

3. The Ability. The incredible architects, for instance, building swayed but didn’t fall.

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

5. The Order. No loothing 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-reactor. How will they ever be repaid?

7. The Tenderness. Restaurant 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 sensationalizing. Only calm reportage.

10. The Conscience. When the power went off in a store, people put things back on the shelves and left quietly.

“Sayonara,” the only Japanese word I know from the heart…
