    1. It's an unexpected event and hard to overcome.
    2. We would be panicked and vulnerable.
    3. We should start from the very beginning. I think,education system in Turkey is nearly collapsed and people are becomig more and more uncapable of using their minds and creativity.

      I totally agree with you on the third question. We are not educated enough to decide for our own any more.

    1) It was one of the most terrifying event which occurred in the last decades.
    2) Thousands of people would die and injured in case of a disaster like that.
    3) Nothing. In Turkey money is more valuable than human life. Isn't this fact as terrifying as an earthquake?

    1)it was one of the bad calamity of the japan and japanese people.
    2)if such a huge earthquake happened in turkey it would be economically ruin of the our country.
    3)earthquake is an inevitable situation but people can take some precautions like as earthquake training, building tough structures,living strong ground places....but the true thing is these are only precautions. japanese people taked these kind of measures but they couldn't cope with this natural calamity.

    1)I can't understand Japanese people. Although they have been living loads of bad things during the world history , they're calm and respectful eachother
    2) I'm not sure whether or not we will be able to like them
    3) Training is very important ,I think. İn my opinion, our culture is not enough to solve some problems .

    1) japanese people are accustomed to this event but this time they look very surprized.
    2) a lot of houses would destroy and many people would die because there aren't any precautions
    3) I don't think something should be done to decrease the damages of earthquakes and I agree with tanil and pioneer.

    What I see is all of us are a little hopeless about the solution which is not a surprise to anyone I think.
    Of course you must hear the news about "temporary building license" which permits to the unappropriate buildings for 70 years. 70 years!!!
    How many of us will still be alive even in next 20 years? Everybody say that Turkey should be prepared for a big earthquake, but the government does the vice versa!
