The Spirit of the Japanese


These people in the picture (see link below ), their tools and the horror of a wasteland they believe they will reclaim, defines a Japanese mindset most of us do not know. Looking at the small man (on picture-frame) and his giant equipment in an uncomfortable, definitely oily, saline environment gives me, a stranger thousands of miles away, some hope, and that hope and hard work appear to define the Japanese people. They need it to face the cruel hand nature and nurture played against them during the last Great Tsunami as the world watched, helplessly.
