    they have a positive outlook despite the horror of the situation. ofcourse they are not so calm , it is human to feel various things under these circumstances but they look for solutions and do not complain. I have talked to a few people and the feedback was more or less the same - they are as fine as they can be and ready to fix their country. maybe some people see this "non expression" as a lack of emotions but it is not. it is just a cultural attitude to a problem and there is nothing wrong with that. People don't always feel better by whinging to the planet but feel better when they act to fix things. solidarity between people in those circumstances also make this catastrophe more bearable for many. Tokyo is almost back to normal but not other areas. so let' s see what we can all do as foreigners to help them. the eficient way to convey help is to give funds, you can give money to the red cross, red croissant whatever is available in your area as they can support the red cross in Japan when required ( they have no asked help from their international counterparts yet). this money will assist the rebuilding and any basic need some of those poor people who lost everything may have. so let's help actively instead of talking ....
