It takes a lot of energy from me to to scream in fear. The Philippines is in the "Ring of Fire." We are highly prone to earthquakes, volcanic erruptions and tsunamis. It terrifies me that what is happening to Japan may one day happen here. How can our little country survive something like that? Our sad, disorganized country.
I've gotten in contact already with my former students who now are back in Japan and I'm happy to hear they are safe. One was stuck in a train during the earthquake, God bless her for her bravery.
