If you’re an animal lover like me here are some local Japan-based groups helping to rescue dogs, cats and other pets:

Incredible. This is a really tragedy.

After to see the terrible images of the tsunami that distroied cities and countries, it is incredible to see their "composure" to face this disaster. As told from Val, Japanese people has lost everything and it is our "MUST" to help them in any way. Also a very short offer done from all Italian people can contribute to help their recovery. I've already sent my SMS to CRI, and more than one.

When the Nature rebels against the man is a real disaster…and unfortunately when these things happen the humanity is really insignificant and weak.

Yesterday a friend of mine sent me an sms..."forward this sms to other 10 friends of yours, people you love, and a miracle will happen to you; otherwise, if you don't do this..." you can easily imagine what was following. It's not the first time I receive by some friends of mine such stupid chain e-mails/sms...

Hi, I was born in a town near L'Aquila. My parents live where I was born. I know the sensation of those moments, is terrible. I think that nature is rebelling and I believe that people to deal with the planet about how to live with more love and respect.

I thing like Tiziana. The Man often forgets that he is a little point in the universe and that he can't control and dominate the nature.

I think that only people who have experienced similar disasters can understand the tragedy of these people. I hope that even in this case, the world can help these people rebuild their country to begin to live again.

what happened in Japan is a tragedy but I would like to focus on the reaction of the people: I've seen a dignity, an organisation and an order really to admire. I hope that the rest of the world supports this country.

The nuclear alert is increasing. All the world is praying for Japanese people. They are an example for the world because they are strong and ready to start again. After the Earthquake the Japanese built a motorway in a week.It's incredible...

I'm very sorry for the Earthquake that struck the Japan. In addition to the victims and damages, now the Japanese are forced to live daily with the fear. But like Laura said, this is a strong and humble people and I hope that people will recover as soon as from this situation.

The earthquake damaged Japan less than two months ago, but now papers, radio and Tv don't talk anymore about it. Why?
17/5/2011 08:17:00 pm

25/5/2011 08:38:07 pm
