The nuclear plant in devastated area increases the stakes
A japanese blogger said that
The workers in the nuclear plants impressed me.
The prime minister Naoto Kan inspected the scene from a helicopter.
But this is useless.
The workers are annoyed with the top functionaries
What we can do is to trust the workers and do our best however small these things are.
I agree with him. I can’t imagine how they can feel fear.
I was thinking about what I should do.
But I couldn’t think of any idea that could change the situation in a big way.
A psychotherapist said on twitter
When a disaster occurrs , many people think “I’m pathetic. Many people are troubled”
” I can’t do anything. ”
So they have developed PTSD (posttraumatic stress disorder).
It shouldn’t be. Everyone feels fear and weak.
Everyone shouldn’t punish himself and be kind to himself.
We had better act spontaneously.
The little things I can do are as below.
・I trust all the workers with people around the world.
・I save on electricity
・I donate reliable organisation without sending useles articles
・I go on with our usual lives
・I don’t forget smile.
That’s ok at the moment.
I believe that the aggregate of these little things will have a positive effect on devastated area.

You are very brave and many people outside of Japan are sending help and many kind thoughts to the Japanese people.
Please know that the world is supporting Japan in this difficult time. We will be here to help you.
Thank you for your Blog and for letting us know about what is happening.
Thanks.I know many countries are supporting our country.
We really appreciate it.
We are sure that we will help the other countries troubling.
How can we help from France, is there trustful organisations/associations we can contact ?
@ Marie-Christine, Red Cross is always a good option (although apparently nobody updated the French site since the earthquake, not good. Hopefully it will be done on Monday).
@Cocomino: you’re having the best attitude right now. Great! Ganbatte!
@David Thank you for the information.
Thank you for your thought.
Only kindness is enough now.
But if you will donate, I also think Red Cross is ok.
The other site is as below.
○ @ClassyRose told me the site.
○ world vision
Sorry, I don’t know you can donate in France.
I owe you one.
This site has information for Foreigners in Japan and all over the World
I don’t know what to say in this situation 😦
Thanks.Just praying is OK. 🙂
Excellent advice Cocomino. We take it one day at a time and remember to trust the process and smile to help cheers others up. 🙂
Thank you for your perspective… Sending prayers to all always!
Thank you for your nice comment and continue to read my blog.
“Everyone feels fear and weak. Everyone shouldn’t punish himself and be kind to himself.”
we notice, we are all ONE mankind, we are “walking in your shoes” …
I searched “walking in your shoes” .It sounds deep message.
Thanks a lot.
My hats off to the rescue workers helping those in need despite that they too may have been worried about their won families. 😦
I see.Thanks comment.
take care of you!!!
It’s the little things that can sometimes mean so much.
I agree that it’s hard to keep smiling sometimes when you remember what’s going on, but… life is going on as usual here too, and I can’t stop that even if it feels unfair sometimes.
I’m doing the little I can to help as well, trusting those who are experts to do their jobs and trying to keep up spirits at work and at home. ^^)b
Thank you. You are very helpful!
Hi Cocomino, you’re right. Little things done many people amounts to a lot. 🙂
Thanks much.I’m glad that you sympathize with my way of thinking.
A great attitude, Cocomino! The Buddha taught that everything relates to everything else. So every helpful thing you do makes the world a better place. That’s a true Bodhisattva (bosatsu 菩薩), in my opinion.
I also think that bosatsu 菩薩 see this situation.
I hope that he will help us.
