Greetings. I have been a member for a while, but I have hardly posted a reply so far. However, I would like to present the body of an email received
from a friend in Japan. Regardless of our convictions, I believe it deserves to be made public, even if only to offer due respect for their current
suffering. To the OP, please accept my apologies for this intrusion, however I cannot create threads yet and believe this thread is closely related to
the contents of the email.

Here it goes:
" dear friends,
for all the blessings and love
your will to help,to devote,to pray
just feeling enormous gratitude to all of you.
now I recieved a message from a friend
who got the information from the officer of japanese army.
that in Fukushima nuclear plant,the nuclear reactor has started to melt down.
and there is nothing to do for preventing the explosion,
what they are trying to do is only delaying it.
there are 4-5 times more amount of nuclear fuel in Fukushima than in Chernobyl
and what makes this situation worse is that
Fukushima has 6 reactor buildings next to each other.
and 3rd reactor building is run by the Mox fuel,which contains pultonium.
and as you know pultonium has very high radioactive.
what I want to tell you
is that please,don't waste this opportunity.
that is true
there are so much informations going around right now in Japan.
flood of talkings,rumors.....
it is very hard to find out what really the truth is.
media is saying something and we see on the newspaper something else.
there are e-mails of warnings and mobile-alarm for another earthquakes.
electrical company who doesn't inform us the truth on time.
it makes all of us confuse and tired
and the worst case could be,
people would go into panic.
but the fact is this.
the danger we are facing now is yours too.
if the explosion would happen,
the radiation would spread all over the world.
Three mile island disaster on 1979,
Chernobyl on 1986,
we human didn't learn from the lessons which costed us so much.
one proverb in japanese
"after passing the throat,you forget about the heat"
which means when the hottest food is passing our throat,
we feel the pain and say NO MORE!
but the moment it passed through,we don't care any more.
we leave it as if nothing has happenned.
and again we take one even hotter.
I heard that there was an demonstration against the nuclear plant in Germany.
if we all can't learn the lesson from this catastrophy....
it will cost this planet.
we say one life is equally important as one planet earth,
we already lost thousands of,millions of them.
please don't waste time.
if you really think that we japanese need help,
here one thing you can do.
please change the world.
"no more Hiroshima and Nagasaki!!"
we Japanese,the unique country who recieved atomic bombs
are facing this human-disaster again.
natural disaster,we can't stop.
but human-disaster,we can stop.
it is maybe time,
don't you think so?
with love and hope
