    I didn't notice any silent people where I was--not a soul.

    Japan falls silent for tsunami victims

    National Mar. 11, 2012 - 06:00PM JST ( 27 )


    People stop for a moment of silence at 2:46 p.m. to mark the anniversary of the earthquake and tsunami which devastated northeastern Japan, at the Shibuya crossing in Tokyo, on Sunday. AP
    TOKYO \
    Japan fell silent on Sunday to honor the 19,000 people killed a year ago when a huge earthquake sent a tsunami barreling into the coast, sparking a nuclear crisis at Fukushima.

    its nice to people take a moment of silence, but its not enough.

    I think the entire workforce should stay home in mass on monday as I reminder to the j-gov that things need to change here.

      That's an excellent idea, and seeing as it's spring break right now, I'll be part of your Monday mass.

          It's the thought that counts.

            Just drop your thought into the local collection box. That's all that counts, and all they want.

              Their collection box money is and will be coming from my paycheck.

                  Yeah..silent..except for the old wannabe Annie Leobovitz gaijin snapping pictures of a grieving crowd in front of me yesterday in Yoyogi.
                  She saw my face and wisely scuttled away out before it ended.
                  Her camera would have been the least of her worries.
                  Like she couldn't have waited 2 fkn minutes?!

                    That's some very low-key name-dropping there.

                      Huh? It wasn't really Annie Leiobovitz . It was just some stupid lady taking pictures.

                        I should have known. I read it as Leibovitz being an old wannabe, which didn't make much sense.
