Today's Japan earthquakes and tsunamis

Loss of life is almost always awful and tragic. Yet we must remain aware that our planet is here as a result of natural disasters and so is humanity. Natural disasters are part of life and it's our responsiblity as humans to listen to what science tells us and to prepare and protect ourselves the best way possible for no supreme being is ever going to come to our rescue. How much evidence do we need of this?!

It's also our responsibility to help one another after an event like today's and make certain that goverments remain also held responsible, requiring and enforcing appropriate building codes, establishing and protecting early warning systems, educating and preparing their citizens and managing emergencies as best possible.

To help:

The American Red Cross Disaster Relief.

The British Red Cross Disaster Fund.
