The video is SHOCKING
It shows the mind numbing
Jaw dropping advance of the
Tsunami in Japan

Homes, cars, trailers....
Everything in sight
Swept away in less than ten minutes

Terrified people running for their lives
Heroic friends risking their lives
Trying frantically to help

Where do you run when a
Daughter or son
Is drowning in addiction....
A parent dies unexpectantly....
Or the doctor's diagnosis spawns a
Tsunami of tears and sleepless nights

What HERO do you cling to
When you can't make sense of things
And you're about to go under....

When you're overwrought with fear....
Overrun by a world coming apart
Without warning

May THE HERO who suffered
                     And died for you
THE ONE who cried in the garden
                     That night for you

Be the one you run to....
Be the rock you cling to....
Until you find peace again.
