Amagasaki

There is really nothing I can say about yesterday’s train crash at Amagasaki, but I have to say something. Amagasaki is about 40 minutes from where we live, and we have stopped there numerous times on the way to Osaka. I’ve never taken that line, though Bronwyn did when she was here and took the train to AstroBoy’s Museum in Takarazuka. I take the train to work most days a week, and the train I’ve seen in pictures looks the very same as mine. This is not to say that one’s proximity to tragedy is so paramount, but it’s certainly upsetting. Between earthquakes, tsunami and various human-made disasters, one must step carefully on this continent. Or at least it’s seemed that way this past year. I am very sad for all those poor people involved, and I’m hoping for a miracle or two.
