They're braver than me! I'm sitting in the comfort of my home and they're attempting to cool the belly of a nuclear beast! Wish you luck over there I
wish none of this had happened but on hte bright side of things this event reminds us that we all live on the same planet and what happens in one
country can affect another and every person on the earth matters not just our own.
I can stand on the shore of the pacific and look west and .. on the other side is asia. Not far away really if you think about it in terms of hte size
of weather systems. I imagine one day people loook back on it and think we were silly for having different countries just because we were separated by
bodies of water. "Oh look at them they're right next to eachother yet they live in different countries!"
Looking at the before and after images of destroyed japanese port towns and cities is making me ill. So much was lost that 10,000+ dead does not tell
the story. Infrastructure was lost. All of this can be rebuilt but it's expensive. Imagine this is happening all across hte world bit by bit. Costs us
time and money. And you go back 100 years and the idea makes you want to vomit. A massacre.
It could have been anyone. This disaster could have struck someone else. Like me, for example. Right now I could be dead or looking at rubble all
around here in Oregon and Washington and along the NW coast. We will eventually get hit ourselves. It will be an ugly nightmare for many.
There're about 127 million people in japan. That's a lot of people to fit on what I imagine is a small land area compared to the US. When disaster
strikes, it's like they all feel it.
California actually has more area than japan, but hard to tell here:
California has 37,000,000 people. Japan has 127,000,000 and less land area.
