Nature's fury has battered Japan yet again, after a powerful earthquake triggered a humongous tsunami, which may have killed 10,000 people, thousands others missing and injured.

But refusing to give up, Japan is fighting back, inch by inch, against the steep challenges for its survival.

The world prays so that Japan gathers strength to rebuild its beautiful country.
