First up,officials from NATO,the US and Afghanistan are investigating in a shooting that took place in Afghanistan over the weekend.An American solider allegedly left his base and killed more than a dozen Afghan civilians,including women and children in two villages.He then went back to the base and turned himself in.Officials say the alleged1 shooter was acting2 on his own,they don't have any possible motives3 for the attack.One NATO commander said that the "appalling4 incident in no way represents the values of coalition5 troops or the abiding6 respect we feel for the Afghan people".The US ambassador assured the people of Afghanistan that whoever is responsible will be brought to justice.
 
 
Tears,prayers and a moment of silence,those were some of the ways in which Japan marked the tragic7 anniversary of last year's devastating8 earthquake and tsunami9.Extraordinary images like these show you how powerful and destructive these natural disasters were.More than 15000 people were killed by the quake and tsunami.And last year,right after it happened,we asked you to share your thought,words of encouragement for the victims of these disasters.We asked you to put those on our blog and here's what some of you had to say at that time.
 
 
From Libby:the devastation10 is just so mind-blowing.My prayers go to those affected11 by this disaster.
 
Guffey said:We should show our support for the people of Japan,perhaps by donating money or supplies.
 
Elizabeth said that despite all the chaos,there are people who struggle to live and have hope that things will work out.There is hope in every living witness of this disaster.
 
And Toyo said,I am reading these messages in Japan.Thank you everybody in the world.
Kyung Lah now has more on yesterday's anniversary in the memorial ceremony in one city.
 
 
A year after the tsunami.This is downtown Ishinomaki,still bearing all the scars,of when the tsunami roared ashore12 a year ago.There is so much work and rebuilding to be done but for just this moment,this city paused to remember all the victims,who had died in the tsunami.People stopping here to lay flowers to remember the dead.
 
 
Monks13 walk through Ishinomaki,chanting for the souls of the dead so that they my rest in peace.But many other remembrances here in Ishinomaki were on a small scale.Jie Kozutzumi lay flowers for two friends,who today are still missing.
 
 
All I can do is keep going,she says,and live in the best way I can.One foot in front of the other as Japan continues torecover.Kyung Lah,CNN,Ishinomaki,Japan.
 
 
It's time to take a look back with the special women's history month edition of "This Day In History".

The latest report on the employment situation in America came out last Friday.There is a great breakdown16 at the numbers at our website.We want to walk you through part of them right now.
 
 
The big numbers are right at the top.During the month of February,227,000 jobs were created and the unemployment rate was 8.3%,that's the same as it was the month before.It doesn't include people who are underemployed.But we have that number for you,too.It's 2.6 million and those are folks who have either stopped looking for a job or who are working but not as much as they want or in the jobs they want to work in.
 
 
Lots of great information here,check it out at CNN Student news.com
