Whats happening in Japan has the potential of changing life on Earth forever. Sadly, we are realizing the world at large doesnt agree...or care. And
anything older than a few days...weeks at the most...goes by the wayside of importance, whereas they were all important they day they happened. These
things...serious or life threatening...gets replaced by other things.
Whats happened to those stories "oh-my-God-what-are-we-gonna-do-it-this-is-IT-forSURE!!!!????" Occupy movement, End of the world 2012, North Korea's
missles are pointed at us... Libya, Syria, this is the start of WW#...and all the other terrible news of victims of earthquakes, disasters, tsunamis
etc etc....These were top topics of the day but then got replaced by other this-is-it stories. The world goes on and forgets the news of
yesterday...like it doesnt really matter anymore. And millions are still affected.
Try this: Take note today of any really important story that is world-effecting like this one, write it down and then come back to it in 2 weeks to a
month and see if its being discussed and/or noted as in importance to us all. It wont be there like when it 1st came out. We will never get the whole
world together, arms around each other and say "we gotta fix this now!" The whole world is NOT together on things due to religious and political
differences. They do not care about these things equally.
I remember someone here posting something about don't we care about the starving people in (pick any number of countries to place here)? And, when are
we (the world) gonna DO something? My response was we do care...and cared in the 1960's, the 80's, 90's, New Millenium, 2012 and today. Yes. We did
not save the world, eliminate hunger, rebuild all the societies...They are still starving, still in political and religious upheavals and
So, why should this matter too? Whether Japan implodes, explodes or radiates gamma rays into the Pacific...today its only so much. Tomorrow, even
less...even with those starving in Africa STILL starving. I do believe too that this Fukashima thing may be the 1 catalyst that is about to affect the
I just wish the whole world...together...and at the same time...would change. Unfortunately...it isnt going to.
