Japan Says "Arigato"

I think it says something truly profound about East Asian--and particularly Japanese--cultural norms and attitudes that this is the sort of thing which emerges six months after the worst disaster that nation has experienced since WWII, a far greater disaster than anything the United States has experienced in my lifetime. It's a sweet, simple, sincere, and heart-wrenching video, from a devastated (but recovering) people to all those who assisted them, in ways large and small, in their time of need. My thanks to Yumiko and Dave Jenkins, who passed it along.
