As we look around the world and see the suffering of other people, how can we complain about our misfortunes? Even the poorest among us cannot possibly be worse off than those in Libya and Japan.
I was just listening to the news and heard stories about how the Libyan people suffer at the hands of Gaddafi. Hearing these stories made my heart ache for them. The man is a brutal killer and a liar. Therefore, nothing he says can be trusted.
One of the concerns people have, who live around nuclear facilities in this country, is the fear of a melt-down. Even though experts assure us that our sites have been upgraded and are different than the Japanese reactors, people still harbor fears of facing a radiation leakage into the population.
The Japanese culture is all about honor, respect, and pride in their nation. As a society, they do what is right and best for the whole and needs of the individual come last. In contrast, we in America have the opposite attitude; the individual need comes before that of society as a whole.
