Sometimes history breaks my heart

I am always, always learning things about the world that I didn’t know before.

This week I learned about the 1923 Great Kanto Earthquake in Japan.

It was horrible. The earthquake hit, then the region burned, then the tsunami crushed everything, then the riots and ethnic violence began.

Sometimes history just breaks my heart.
