Unless you live under a rock you have seen countless tsunami videos over the past month. The following video entitled "South Sanriku — Tsunami seen from Shizugawa High School” is without a doubt the most terrifying. The video is filmed from atop an adjacent hill. As the wave draws nearer and nearer the voices of the locals become more frightened by the moment. You don't have to understand a single word of Japanese to understand their situation. Watch closely, as the video ends and you literally see residents running for their lives. I think it goes without saying that this is not a family friendly video.

If you haven't given much thought to the situation these people are in I hope this video makes you reconsider. As mentioned before, please take a moment to pray for the people of Japan as their lives have been wiped away.
