Making Headway Three Months After

We want to acknowledge today’s three month anniversary of the earthquake and tsunami by sharing a few links with you. The picture above is one of many chronicling the clean up of debris that can be seen here. It’s truly astounding what progress has been made, yet clearly there is still much work to be done before things return to normal. For instance, 90,000 people still remain in temporary shelters. The anniversary was marked by mass anti-nuke protests across the country and the tide seems to finally be shifting in government  toward renewable energy after consistent and strong public concerns about nuclear energy. The last story regards the Skilled Veterans Corp, a group of retired engineers and other professionals who are mobilizing to replace the flagging Fukushima nuclear plant workers. Whether it will actually happen is another story, but the desire of these pensioners to sacrifice for the younger generation and contribute is truly touching.
