How much can one country take, poor Japan, the sad thing for me was the land that gives us so many fantastic camcorders utilises all that technology to record the demise of so many innocent men, women and children.
All the media outlets have been amazed at the quality of the footage coming out of Japan while I personally see beyond the camera lens and think of the poor factory worker looking at his telly and seeing his house, wife and children being taken away by the force of mother nature.
It’s why I chose not to stay with television news as a cameraman, I hated every minute I spent with reporters knocking on poor souls doors who have just lost a loved one in order to score brownie points with the news editor, it sucks.
So the next time you see pictures coming out of Japan think of the humanity, the wonderful people lost forever who were doing their daily tasks innocent of the wave of destruction about to descend on them, and not about the technology that caught every last moment of these poor peoples lives.
