gardes, I am feeling exactly how you are feeling....because our whole family had gone for a vacation to japan in 1993....and pretty much we traveled the same area where the disaster has struck....I have such lasting memories of Japan mainly because of the people, the system, service and cleanliness...I could not believe also that how Japan overcame the nuclear attack and came out ahead than any other country...my God Japanese people are so hardworking...so polite and the cleanliness is built into their religion...even 1993 it was far advanced than America in many ways.  My heart breaks to see this kind of nature disaster...proves time and time again that how impermanent life is...we all take things for granted....fight for the silliest pocession...but the reality is that we can loose everything....in a blink of an eye...May God give strenth to the families who have lost their dear ones....my prayers are with them. 
 
KSheila, the one memory I came back with from my vacation was of the Japanese people.  You are so right.  They are so polite that we never felt there was a language barrier.  People went out of their way to walk us to where ever we wanted to go, showed us where to get off trains and subways, or stopped and pulled up maps on their cellphones to locate our hotels, if we could not read signs to find them!  And so polite that kids playing in the street would stop and bow if we happened to walk or drive past them.  I don't know too many teenagers who would do that these days.
 
It is hard to watch but I also feel that the Japanese will come through, as you said, through hard work!  They certainly have our prayers.

I was sent this today about the way Japan is coping with the disaster wanted to share.
1. THE CALM
Not a single visual of chest-beating or wild grief. Sorrow itself has been elevated.
2. THE DIGNITY
Disciplined queues for water and groceries. Not a rough word or a crude gesture.
3. THE ABILITY
The incredible architects, for instance. Buildings swayed but didn€™t fall.
4. THE GRACE
People bought only what they needed for the present, so everybody could get something.
5. THE ORDER
No looting in shops. No honking and no overtaking on the roads. Just understanding.
6. THE SACRIFICE
Fifty workers stayed back to pump sea water in the N-reactors. How will they ever be repaid?
7. THE TENDERNESS
Restaurants cut prices. An unguarded ATM is left alone. The strong cared for the weak.
8. THE TRAINING
The old and the children, everyone knew exactly what to do. And they did just that.
9. THE MEDIA
They showed magnificent restraint in the bulletins. No silly reporters. Only calm reportage.
10. THE CONSCIENCE
When the power went off in a store, people put things back on the shelves and left quietly

Thanks, Chalhov.  I too got it in the mail yesterday and I agree with all that is said in there.
 
The impression of Japan that you leave with are its people.  And it is not just me.  Someone whose project I work on, went to Japan for a professional presentation after I did and was asked about his trip there.  His first and only response was the Japanese people.  It is a very proud (in the nicest possible way) nation, taking pride in its culture, heritage, and its nation.
 
Our prayers continue to be with them.
