Odd camera angle. The girl on the right looks like a cardboard cutout.

Sport and music activities can inspirit all people now. All four girls looked optimistic and full of energy

Clever "pray" on words too, hope it wasn't accidental.

Praying is like saying you'll do nothing... unless of course you can prove that your 'god' will actually show up this time and lend a hand. I still don't get the play for Japan either as I already think people on on Japan's side in this 'battle' as CNN will most likely not call it a war on mother nature.

Moderator: Please do not mock people who pray.

keeping it classy... This photo is about supporting those suffering in this horrific tragedy. Not about "i ruv you".

@manfromamerica - Well maybe. But I'm guessing it's about making a banner and going to a soccer game. Then later watching the news and showing some concern by twittering your mates.

I applaud these girls, the banner shows that and all part of the process of getting back to normalization...

This is not a time for cynicism, but rather to show support for Japan through your prayers, through sports play, in whatever ways feel best for each individual. Gambatte Nippon!

These girls have their heart in the right place - and they are incredibly cute too!

Put your money were your mouth is instead of saying you'll pray which is the same as saying you'll do nothing.

Dear JT MODs. That's to the point of this photo and to censor my statement again is to say I can not say there is no god. Prove to me there was a god that allowed all those people to die. That's one sick and twisted god.

To whom will they pray to? I hope not the same god that allowed all those people to die...

Please tell me what is to pray? To whom do we pray to?
