Japanese citizens under pressure in Sendai

Got this in my email this morning. I am very impressed with the Japanese people. Below is the message that came with it (I wished their politicians have such character)

A long line of residents seeking water forms on a school playground in Sendai on Sunday, two days after a powerful earthquake and tsunami hit Japan's northeastern coast. One Iwate prefecture official said deliveries of food and other supplies were meeting only 10% of people's needs.
At a convenience store in one battered area, a manager turned to a private electrical generator. When the generator stopped working, and the cash register could no longer open, customers who had been waiting in line quietly returned their items to the shelves.
