Nuclear, March 2017 (16,000 RIP)

A young couple prays for the victims of the March 2011 Tohoku earthquake on a tsunami barrier at Arahama Beach in Sendaii, Miyagi Prefecture. The 9.0-magnitude quake triggered a tsunami that devastated northeastern Japan, killing nearly 16,000 people and causing a nuclear disaster at Tokyo Electric Power’s Fukushima Daiichi power plant (Kimimasa Mayama, EPA, Shutterstock, March 11, 2018)

    It was and is horrible…lasting scars, physically on people and the landscape and mental scars…the leaking radiation flowing around the island and across the ocean… polluting. debris, deposited, washed up on the west coast of the USA I have seen such debris) My daughter has many friends in Japan (some are American and some are Japanese) . It was hard for her waiting to find out if they were fine…some lost their homes…One must cherish each breath, as each breath is a gift…
