I've been watching lots of videos of the tsunami/earthquake and its aftermath. While there is a great deal of sorrow, there have also been happy moments, reunions, and good news.
I don't think anything moved me as much as the end of this video, though. Beginning at the 2:08 mark and continuing to the end, we see the story of a man who was the president of a now-destroyed sake factory which employed fifty people. This man told his employees after the earthquake that they could decide whether to go home or go to shelters; after the tsunami, he made contact with twenty-two employees--and then searched shelters every day to try to find the rest. The video shows him meeting a twenty-third employee and locating three more. The emotion on the gentleman's face when he meets his employee--the genuine relief and happiness at one more found alive--made more of an impact on me than anything else I've seen. The video is here:
This kind of thing witnessed in the aftermath of tragedy tends to give one faith in humanity, after all.
