Japan desaster

I found this wonderful piece of poetry by Kokan Shiren (1278-1346) and i very much like it in these hard times:

Still things moving,
firm becomes unfirm,
land like ocean waves,
house like a boat --
a time to be fearful,     
but to delight as well;
no wind, yet the wind-bells
keep on ringing.

he wrote this after a devastating earthquake in Japan 700 years ago!
I strongly believe in the power of the japanese people to stand up again! Seiichi, keep it up!!!
