Japan - Before and After

A friend emailed this link to me last night.

I found it incredibly helpful.

I'd been watching the coverage of the earthquake off and on since it happened, and had been struck by the devastation, but was struggling to truly grasp it, since I had no concept of what things had looked like before.

For those of you who didn't click through to the link, it's a series of overlaid satellite images.  The exact same area before the earthquake/tsunami, and again after.  It gives an incredible depiction of the destruction that has taken place.

And, as is so often true, moves my heart to pray more deeply.

Lord have mercy.
