Just do yourselves a favor---" DON'T BUY INTO THE HYPE " The MSM is trying--for who knows what reason, to whip the masses into a frenzy of fear over those reactors.
Is it bad--absolutely it is--no one should deny that---but in no way is it anything near what some in the Media are spinning---not ever close.
How some need to be told how devastating that Tsunami was is something I'll not come close to understanding---Water by volume is one of the most destructive forces on earth--set it in motion---billions upon billions of gallons--and what you see in the coastal regions of Japan is what you get---especially after such an earthquake--
You want to help--you feel the basic human need to help yet the event is beyond measure--it's too big--Japan isn't a poor country--they have means--yet it's like sticking a tiny finger into a huge hole in a massive damn--impossible at first--only time and a massive coordinated effort will even begin to make a dent in all the things those people truly need.
Mael mentioned Diapers---just imagine--something everyone takes for granted---clean drinking water--something to eat---warm place to sleep---close to 1 million--maybe many many more are in need of these things---so money and the others things that usually come to mind first--are useless--
Here's one thing that has yet to be mentioned by anyone in this thread--( I SAW IT PRINTED ON DRUDGE THE SECOND DAY ) He must have been TOLD to remove it---it was up for a very brief period of time.. Titled " WHERE IS THE LOOTING "
Please watch, please pay attention as to how the Japanese people handle this disaster ----they wait patiently for their turn in line for food and water- they respect others---they give food to those who have yet to eat---they protect and care for the elderly--the children--they carry themselves with utmost dignity even in the face of possible death--
WE ALL should be ashamed of ourselves as we watch this, and should be equally humbled. I'll not cite any examples of the past here in the states--it would be disgraceful by comparison.
It's my true belief in regard to heroes and what, and who, Americans deem to be by way of brainwashing --Cops--Firemen-Military--- No you see--
Think about those workers in those Atomic plants who have stayed behind trying their best as others were told to leave, to stabilize those reactors. Being exposed, maybe thinking of giving their lives for the rest of their people--working with gear damaged by the Tsunami--trying everything they possibly can to do all they can to bring that situation under control.
Heroes by all other accounts--simply will never stack up regardless of what their day job just so happens to be.
