I did not know that about Japan. HOly cow...what is going on??? I am not Buddhist but I was listening to a station that was talking to the Dalai Lama and he said he is the last one I have heard about what the Mayans have stated about 2012...With this crazy weather things don't long so bright. I say all we have is God and family to hold us together!!!

People forget that earthquakes and tsunamis have been going on since the beginning of time. The earth is constantly changing and tectonic plates are always moving.
