Japanese Pride in times of Disaster

Reading at the news articles and looking at the photos of the disaster that earthquake and tsunami had brought to Japan, there is one thing that I notice, Japanese people are the most civilized people on the planet. There had been so many natural disasters happened to different countries all over the world, and after-math images captured by the camera lenses are not uncommon to us. We saw the way people behave after disasters, man-made or natural. Usually, the images were always chaos and more chaos. However, in Japan, you will see, that the only chaotic scenes are the over-turned vehicles, collapsed houses and buildings, and scattered debris. And the people? The Japanese are quietly in line nearby the store, waiting patiently for his/her turn to buy things needed. The grocery stores and gas stations are empty, but not because of looting, they are empty because Japanese people bought whatever were left. There are no screaming, fighting, or looting. Japanese just show to the world, how civilized they are, even in times of disaster. We can learn a thing or two from them, what do you think?
