Aftermath Of Japan’s Earthquake And Tsunami In Photos

Reports said that more than 10,000 people died after a 9.0 magnitude earthquake and a huge tsunami hit Japan on March 11, 2011.

I am very sad to see the aftermath photos of the disaster.

It must be very hard for the victims.

Most of them lost almost everything including their families and friends.

I hope they will be strong and may tomorrow be a better day for all of us.

And we should learn a lesson from the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Plant Disaster.

So we should not be greedy and we should build more huge wind turbines and wind farms to produce electricity.

Do not destroy our Earth and Go Green.
