In this video the Japanese people extend their heartfelt gratitude to the people all over the world you came to their aid after the devastating earthquake and tsunami struck on March 11, 2011.

The Japanese extend their thanks

I have written before, just after the tragedy, of the immense dignity which was displayed by the Japanese people for all the world to see in the wake of their devastating tragedy. We were amazed to see the complete absence of looting and pillaging, and we were equally astounded at their courage, and we wondered how things would have been in our own lands had such a catastrophe had struck us.

Now, in the video below, the Japanese extend their heartfelt thanks to the people who came from all over the world to lend a helping hand and try to do everything they possibly could to ease their immense suffering. When we watch this we are heartened, and we are given hope that compassion and charity and love will soon prevail all over the world.

Thanks to Carol Kinsman for discovering this video and posting it on her facebook page.

Nice post Steve.

I think Japanese have well informed and trained minds and they do not seem to run amok during calamities since they are more habituated to frequent occurrences of earthquakes.

I agree with Mark, but to show thanks when no one should expect to be thanked for doing the right and humane thing is just like the Japanese The Japanese have always been a very honorable and respectful people. It's in their blood. It's their cultural upbringing.

Excellent post, but I wonder whether the Japs are humane when they rule.They killed over 500,000 in Nanking and 75000 in Andaman Islands in a most barbaric manner.

Well, war can turn even the gentlest people into monsters.

A different time Madan. It was war-time, Madan, and a soldier does as his country orders him to do. To judge the Japanese people today for what their warriors did under orders some seventy years ago is the same thing as judging all German people for what a small element, the Nazis, did to the Jews during the Second World War. I think that every country has had its moment of barbarism whether any of their citizens want to admit it today or not.

Hi Steve, Thank you for highlighting the thanks extended by the ordinary Japanese people.
What happened in the war happens in all wars. Its time to move on now, We here in Ireland are still trying to move on after being ruled with an iron fist by England for 800 years and still are in the north of our country. Hatred takes a long time to heal.But maybe some day we will forgive them for what they did to our innocent people.Regards Mikey.

In the past, Japan was often on the giving end of aid to other countries facing tragedies and disasters. This time, they were, most deservedly, on the receiving end. Thanks for sharing, Steve.

This brought tears to my eyes Rhis..That is such a powerful video. Despite all wars, there is still something decent in mankind to offer the hand of friendship and assistance when natural disasters happen..That alone should give us hope..

I think the Israelis are the most courageous people. They are surrounded by enemies; defeat is not an option for them. They hold steadfast, even to keeping the peace by giving up some territory. They are the only friends we have in the Middle East. They are extremely hard-line but have no choice.
God Bless Israel. I am a Christian but I choose to be allied with Israel.

Thank you for that comment Ivyevelyn, although I feel Israel is treating the Palestinians the way they were treated by the Nazis.
