what it means to be Japanese

I don't believe in coincidence, I believe in faith, and I believe that from every thing that happens, there will be a lesson to be learned. And I add one other thing I believe in, I believe in the humanity and the civility that is Japanese.

These pass few days my world has been teared apart into 2 worlds, the world of the fellow non-Japanese, and the world of the Japanese in my Lab. The Japanese world is save and calm, and continues to do their work. The other world is in chaos and panic, it is on the verge of a nuclear meltdown. which part should I put my feet on. I wish there was a way to be in both worlds.

It is only after I read this blog , I understood a little of what it means to be truly Japanese, and how much faith they have on their own people. I admire their spirits and their braveness, but should I follow?

As everyone is running away from Japan, or at least running to the southern part of the country, should I follow? or should I simply stay in my lab, where everything is save and researches are still being conducted and virtually nothing has changed. what should I do? What does it mean however to be truly Japanese if you are not a Japanese?
