The news from Japan has us thinking somber thoughts this evening. Have you ever been present during a disaster, natural or otherwise, or there right afterward to witness the aftermath? Living in the midwest, I've witnessed my share of tornado damage. Also, back in 1992, I got to visit Berlin and see the stark contrast between the east and west. The eastern side was an industrial wasteland. Took home a small chip from the wall, even.
What about you? Discuss.
