EARTHQUAKE IN JAPAN, ICHEOKU EMPATHIZES!
What a world we live in that is a mix of ephemerality and hopelessness such as the awesome power of mother-nature that destroyed Japan. In some fleeting moments, all that we cared for and that are endeared to us become part of 'ancient' history - GONE!
Except you did not watch the footage of the 8.9 magnitude earthquake and the resulting tsunami which swept Sendai, Miyaki Prefecture of Japan like one giant monstrous sweeper, then you can live on still thinking those funny thoughts swirling in your head. It simply shows that we are not in control of anything despite our arrogance pretending otherwise. Icheoku's heart goes out to the people of Sendai Miyaki Prefecture as well as the entire Japanese population for what fate had visited on them early hours of this morning (our time). To the people of Japan, Icheoku says the whole world is with you as you at this time of great destruction and as you clean and eventually rebuild your devastated society as you have previously done in Kobe, our prayers are with you. Goodluck.
