The phrases we use when a man-made or natural catastrophe turns all our planet's inhabitants' eyes in the same direction.
I remember September 11 in 2001. 'We're all Americans.' That's what we said at the time about the man-made catastrophy.
Now I'll remember 3 /11 in 2011."We're all japanese." That's what we can say today about this natural and man-made (we build nuclear power stations)catastrophe.
Words, dates.But one present.One Human People. We think of you Japan.
