I just read a story about a 9 year-old boy in Sendai. He was at the end of a queue for food and a police saw him with just shorts and tshirt on, came by and gave him his jacket and his food and said: " i think the food may run out before your turn. so it's mine. have it". the boy said thank you and suddenly went directly to the table where they were delivering food and put the biscuits there and said to the police: "there are people who need it more than me. it should be fair for everyone". His father, who drove to school in the attempt to pick up his son after the earthquake, was killed by the tsunami. his mom and sister also died as their house was on the beach. i am just speechless right now...

Comment excerpt taken from The Daily Mail.

Although I'm deeply saddened and disturbed by the calamities which befell the boy, I am profoundly overwhelmed by his ability to remain selfless and thoughtful throughout the whole ordeal, whereby at a tender age of 9, his maturity has surpassed how certain adults would have reacted to the situation.

Prayers and thoughts to the people in Japan.
