It was an ordinary Friday afternoon. I was walking along the corridors, thinking on what to do for the night. My volleyball game was tomorrow and I have no idea how to survive it. My Economics grade is also a life-and-death situation, but at least this is the only thing I'm worried about. Others, unfortunately, are worried about their lives. Yes, their lives. When I say it's a life-and-death situation, I mean it. In case you guys aren't updated yet..

A certain area of Japan was attacked by an 8.9 Tsunami. An angry army of waves came about and destroyed hundreds, even thousands of houses, other buildings, boats, cars, the environment, and even the lives itself of the innocent citizens of Japan.

Why did this happen, if you may ask? I do not know. Maybe Mother Nature is taking its course and giving us a warning.

By now, I already have an idea on what we, the people of this world given to us by the Almighty Father, have been doing wrong. A good question to ask ourselves is, "What are we doing right?" Think. These things happen because of us. I know, not all of us are like this- self-centered and irresponsible, but we can do something about it. A tiny change could make a huge difference.

To the ones living in Japan and to the people all over the world with loved ones who are suffering from this very unwanted and devastating experience, my deepest and most sincere condolences to each and every one of you. May God help everyone of us by bestowing us safety and guidance.
