Kelly Ann Thomas made this remark at Enenews in a forum about the death of a young journalist in Fukushima and I asked her if I could re-post her comment because it so thoughtfully expressed the feelings so many of us are struggling with at Enenews. She provided permission after my comment below.
This is the thread where she made the comment.
I am having a hard time focusing on words because all I can think of are bodies of the walking dead. I am so sad for Japan and for humanity. I wonder how many more people have already died from radiation poisoning and we just haven’t been told the truth.
I don’t want to get used to the idea that this is only the beginning of the first wave.
I look at the radiation maps and I just cry. There is a certainty about Japan’s future. Sadness, despair, melancholy, anger, frustration…and there isn’t anything I can do. Sometimes I wonder why I keep coming back to Enenews a dozen times a day (probably more) because the new gets worse and worse and there is all beyond my control.
In the end there isn’t anything we can do, is there? Is that why Edgar Cayce said Japan MUST fall into the ocean?
Is shutting down the other reactors before there is no one else left alive to shut them down our only option?
As it gets worse, the resources will dwindle and the remaining population will be left to fend for themselves in a radioactive wasteland.
More than anything, it is the children that make me lose it. I cannot stand the thought of millions of dying orphans, but that’s what will happen, won’t it? What hope do any of those children have for a beautiful future? It’s just so unfair – and the government and Tepco sit in shamed silence, abandoning the children, abandoning their future.
The first wave is just beginning. What will we see a year from now? I cannot begin to fathom this layer of darkness that will envelope the world.
I hate that there isn’t anything I can do to stop millions of people from dying from this catastrophe. I don’t want to get used to this reality.
Majia: Kelly Ann, may I re-post your comment here on my blog using your name as posted here?
I feel exactly the same way you do.
I have tried to get people I know to pay attention, but few will–and I hang out with academics.
I cannot believe the world would let this happen to the Japanese children without demanding evacuation.
Basically, it seems that if a country wants to slaughter their own, the world’s most powerful nations are content to let that happen without raising a word of concern.
Americans and Canadians better look closely because they are next.
