I got your u2u and tried to reply sorry i think i did it wrong i dont see my daughter shes under control of dhs
I'm sorry.. I misunderstood the situation in thinking you had some influence you were really stressing about. How much more stressful it must be to have no control and these concerns for her safety.
I'd really emphasize the fact Japan isn't a nuclear wasteland with an Asian version of Mad Max thundering down the roads.. lol. I'm being a little sarcastic, but the point is important. It's a nation full of Japanese who aren't sick, dying or particularly worse off today than they were before the Tsunami took out their power plant. Economically? Well...Ask a Japanese..I'd imagine they have colorful words for that topic..but the population isn't dying.
It's ironic..it really is..but as much as I've been the doom talker about Fukushima, and I certainly have nothing positive to say about the plant or what it's doing to us all...there is something just as important to note that will make you feel better.
Fukushima is on the East coast of Japan...and nothing but water sits downwind (for the most part). In some very real ways, being in parts of Japan is likely safer in the long term than being in the Aleutian Islands or West coast of North America. Don't worry for your Daughter.. I wouldn't if my son were heading there. Not if it weren't to live there permanently and no one had crazy ideas about seeing Fukushima for a photo op or something.
