One little miracle in the midst of all the destruction is that after 3 days of looking for her after she was swept out of her parents arms, Japanese Defensemen found a 4 month old baby girl in rubble. They thought they could hear her crying and continued to dig for her. She was cold, wet and hungry but had no injuries. She truly is a miracle.
When I was in high school, we had a foreign exchange student from Japan. She was so sweet and so much fun! She always had us laughing. She taught us a Japanese word I still use to this day, along with my mom and sister. Hey, Jessie and Vicki, remember ishiopie? It's been 11 years since I've seen her and have no idea where she is but I hope she and her family are okay in this disaster.
And since I'm a total animal lover, I always think of all the helpless animals who suffer and die along with the people in these kind of disasters. So I was happy to hear of Mai, the dog being found alive and well by her owners wandering around the debris of her home.
My prayers are with you Japan.
