I've been in shock over the destruction in Japan and I wanted to hear something from the PM and the Emperor,below are their quotes.

Prime Minister Naoto Kan told a national television address Friday that, "We will rebuild Japan from scratch. We must all share this resolve."

H.I.M. Emperor Akihito of Japan made a rare appearance on Japanese national television to share his thoughts and concerns about the aftermath of last week’s 9.0 earthquake and destructive tsunami that followed.

According to the BBC News:

TV stations interrupted programming on Wednesday to show the emperor describing the crisis facing the nation as “unprecedented in scale”.

The 77-year-old �" deeply respected by many Japanese �" said: “I hope from the bottom of my heart that the people will, hand in hand, treat each other with compassion and overcome these difficult times.”

If a country can rebuild itself, it is Japan. They have done it before and will again because their people seem to think more of each other than "me" and work together.

Thank you, West, for your quotes and for thinking of the poor inhabitants of Japan.

It is so surreal; beyond the scope of measured calamities heaped upon a country.

Forces beyond our comprehension happen and we lose our anchor to the reality we know. It will take a while for the world to adjust and recover.

Thanks for the week of quotes.
