EDITORIAL: Super Quake Rocks Japan
Shock and helplessness are my initial reactions to the super tremor and tsunami that hit Japan. Our prayers and sympathy go out to all the victims of this calamity. This should be a warning that all maritime dwellers: that they must eventually move to higher grounds inland. Because the earth is mostly molted rock at its core with, comparatively "thin," floating tectonic plates (cooler earth crust) on top of it, thus all land masses will eventually experience earth quakes in various degrees of intensities-sometime. I hate mentioning this: what happened to the Land of the Rising Sun will happen to the Pearl of the Orient some day (again) as long as our isles rest beside the Ring of Fire zone. Prayerful alertness and action plans must be firmly established by all concerned-now.
