The post below was written by student Angela Oliveira:

The struggle for surviving in this material world has made us all selfish and closed us in to ourselves. It´s time for all of us to sympathize with the Japanese people's pain, to pray for the victims and offer them our solidarity.

Learning from the tragedy:

Are you familiar with these words and expressions?

  • radioactive leaks
  • nuclear powerplants

How can we show solidarity to people who are suffering on the other side of the planet? What can we do except send postive vibrations for the Japanese to get back on their feet again?

I´m not familiar with many of these words. I`ll check their meanings.
It`s really good to have someone to remind us of the most important one : SOLIDARITY.
This word is fundamental not only for world tragedies but also for our everyday life.

Teresa has got reason!
Let`s offer our solidarity not only to the Japanese people but also to many Brazilians who are in need.

Solidarity is an attitude, a way of life, if we take the time to look around.

There is always someone who needs our help.

One thing we can learn from the Japanese: when we help our neighbor, we help ourselves.

When we think of ourselves as part of a group, of the collective, there is enough for everyone.
