I've read in multiple places that earthquake survivors in Japan have responded with far more character, pride and positive attitude than did the hurricane Katrina survivors. Is this a result of the vast number of resources that were readily available to the Japanese that were not available to Americans in the aftermath of Katrina? I've certainly noticed a difference, as images show the people of Japan patiently waiting in LONG lines, whereas images from Katrina show looting and chaos. What are your thoughts?

Japan doesn't/didn't have more resources available than America and America only accepted ~5% of foreign aid from other countries.
