Japan's Disaster

Author's Note: For a seminar, we focused on current events.  Not long ago there was a tsunami in Japan and that was the main focus of our seminar.  We got a prompt to respond to which was: Do you think the U.S. should help Japan after the disaster?  Why or why not?

In the morning of March 11, 2011, an 8.9 magnitude earthquake, followed by a tsunami shocked Japan.  Everything shook and crumbled down, then washed away by waves about 30 feet high.  Buildings ruined, things missing, and lives lost.  

Do you think the U.S. should help Japan after the disaster?  Yes, we should.  The U.S. is the ninth richest place in the entire world so I think we can pitch in to help Japan.  With a little help from other countries around the world there will be a great difference in Japan.  Imagine this happening to the U.S.  We would want others to support us if something happened so we should support them.  There are so many people in need, so many people missing, and so many people who died.  Japan needs all the help that they can get. 

Over two weeks ago a life-impacting earthquake and tsunami hit Japan, and right now is when they need help most.  The United States should help Japan since it is the right thing to do.  Everyone and everything has been severely impacted and they need our support.

  1. I definitely agree with you. You had good reasons to support your opinion. I also liked how you added the link to pictures at the end.
