Unimaginable Terror

I saw pretty much a lot of documentaries showing Japanese citizens doing earthquake drills to  know that the entire country is prepared for catastrophe.  And so it is with sheer terror that I watched this superpower in shambles because of the earthquake and the tsunami.

I was glued to CNN and couldn't believe what I saw. Videos taken by citizens as it happened made all of us feel the violent tremors and that sound of objects shaking made it all the more horrifying. And the tsunami. How can I even describe it? There are probably no words to describe that aerial image of ships, cars, houses being swept away at an alarming speed.  It is unbelievable and unimaginable.

I'm sure the whole world is watching and shaking their heads in disbelief that a disaster-ready country such as Japan can still be defenseless against earthquakes and tsunamis of apocalyptic proportions. No, there is no superpower in this world against Mother Nature.
