Ongoing blog from Fukushima.
I have spent time within the Chernobyl zone that surrounds Fukushima. This was a decade ago when I would travel often to Mito. It was a green less dense part of Japan, and the people a little less frenetic. I have a tremendous love and respect for the Japanese people. In my book they brought the future to the world. I don't know what to do, I have written my MP and MPP suggesting we bring in families from the affected areas to live in University dorms for the summer. My explanation for the governments behavior is that the situation is very grave and evacuating a larger area will be a burden. In keeping with Japanese culture these people are expected to sacrifice for the greater good.
I came across this letter pass it around, send it to your government, these people need to be saved from their own government.
