    Boston Globe’s Big Picture has posted some incredible, harrowing and heartbreaking photos from Japan in this past week. I admire the way photojournalists have been able to, in the wake of this tragedy, capture the fleeting, transient moments that make life and death.

A potential humanitarian crisis looms as nearly half a million people who have been displaced by the disaster continue to suffer a shortage of food and fuel as freezing weather conditions set in.

    波 の 音 を その 胸 に 
    Keep the sound of waves in your heart
    憂鬱 は 沈めて
    Let your melancholy submerge
    橋 は 明日 に 伸ばし 
    Stretch a bridge to tomorrow
    津波 など 案ずる こと なく。
    Without worrying about a tsunami.
