Cradled by God
The joy with which they were abandoned in stark contrast with images of children's shoes abandoned in Japanese schools shown on last night's news - shoes of a lost generation of youngsters.
10 days on from the earthquake and tsunami, still details are only emerging of the scale of loss and devastation and with fears of further radiation danger, it seems we may never know the real toll of the disaster. Only God knows.
However, witnessing this scale of loss, wouldn't you think that we'd grasp how precious human life is and cease from war?
Even if a mother should forget her own child, I will never forget you. How can I forget you. I have written your name on the palm of my hand.
