Fukushima - March 11, 2011 – The Anniversary of the beginning but not the end

Fasting For Fukushima

In the beginning there was so much talk, the usual media crews were sent in to cover the “Breaking News”.  And almost as quickly as they came across the waters to the island nation of Japan they left, quietly and not even leaving a wake.

The story isn’t finished but continues to grow and now in addition to the radiated steam being the story, add to that the cover ups and lies which has spread from Japanese companies and government to our own U.S. government.

Here are a snippet of stories you can read to see what is happening three years later.

  1. I just wrote a really good comment...and then it disappeared. I ask that you enjoy my comment anyway. Just imagine what I might have written and then savor the wisdom contained therein.

  2. What's going on? You are losing why too many comment/posts lately. Could it be the work of the NSA? I can only imagine what you had to say. Thanks.
