Japan is going through a severe disaster of natural calamities and nuclear radiation. The earthquake and tsunami took several lives and the nuclear radiation from various nuke plants may result in serious health threat to the people who are there in Japan. We should be deeply concerned here at HubPages by sharing our thoughts with the people living in Japan... and hence trying to share their moments of grief and uncertainty.
You're welcome to leave a comment for the people living in Japan. Please show you're with them. Thanks!
I heard on CNN last night that many people when greeting eachother in Japan are saying something like "Gom Badi Mas" rather than "kinichiwa."
The greeting means something like, we are in this together.
Haven't been able to find the greeting online.
Maybe someone here knows Japanese?
i think we should stop building those f* nuclear plants unless we want to bring all humanity to extinction. It's enough disaster without nuclear being unleashed. Hopefully it will be a warning to all nations. Nuclear = clean energy = b* sh*t.
Do we have anybody here from Japan? How do they cope?
I have a friend returning from Japan today. Poor thing she went for a holiday, and fortunately has lived to tell the tale, but has returned a month early as she is pregnant, and so worried about the radiation..... fortunately they went to visit friends first before they flew into where the earthquake struck. She is Japanese, and says we are hearing more about what is going on out there, than the rest of Japan.
Radiation is the worst, you don't see it, you don't feel it and already Far East Russia claims it is up!
Iraq will have to deal with radiation from bombs for decades, it will be the same for Japan also.
Iraq deal with radiation from bombs for decades, it will not the same for Japan because in Iraq there was not any Earthquake But here is different situation.People of both countries are innocent but understand the difference that they are facing.
Since not one Iraqi person has proven to attack, not one American on American soil. Yes Japanese people from this nuclear plant now and Iraqi people are both innocent.
“Cancer, Infant Mortality and Birth Sex-Ratio in Fallujah, Iraq 2005–2009,” the people of Fallujah are experiencing higher rates of cancer, leukemia, infant mortality, and sexual mutations than those recorded among survivors in Hiroshima and Nagasaki in the years after those Japanese cities were incinerated by US atomic bomb strikes in 1945.
when I did a chemistry degree years ago, the paper I hated most was radioisotopes - I hated that couldn't see the radiation in miniscule amounts used & that it could be doing invisible damage. Would hate to be trying to deal with tonnes of the stuff.
At least they had experience with it in Hiroshima and Nagasaki at the end of the II World War. In Chernobyl the authorities did not even tell everybody on time. A lot of people were exposed needlessly.
''Gross'' human error for the Chernobyl, accident
Japon has been human error and nature accident could end up worst than Chernobyl,
The images of this disaster become worse every day and our thoughts are with the Japanese people. It is hard to imagine how they will recover from such a disaster, especially the nuclear problem.
We all need to take better care of our World.
All the calamity that is happening in Japan is just heartbreaking. I have already sent some of my funds and I will continue to send my prayers. I love their culture and I have a Japanese language school by where I work and they have become my friends. They are lovely people .
staff withdrawn now. God help those lads and lassies. They have put their neck out, did all they could, to try and stop a meltdown. they have almost certainly put their own lives n the line.
The horror in Japan deepens...
My heart goes out to each and every one of them.
I know my words (or anyone's words, for that matter) don't mean a whole lot in the scheme of the horror and heartbreak that's going on in Japan; but I don't think I know one person who isn't completely saddened and horrified by all that has gone on, and that continues to go on. It seems so hollow to say, "hearts go out to each and every person going through this," - but it's true.
To Hubbers with family or friends in Japan, you're being thought of by so many people around the world too (but there's so little anyone can do, other than send donations).

First of all we all know that Japan is a place where most often earthquakes occour. Then why to build a nuclear power plant there? Now whatever has occoured has occoured. PEOPLE OF JAPAN WE ARE WITH YOU.
'Then why to build a nuclear power plant there? '
Good question. Why build nuclear power plants AT ALL? They are dangerous as hell! You cannot predict any possible disaster. The disposals of power plants activities will be poisoning our planet for ages(centuries?) Only human brain can invent something smart and so stupid at the same time!
Just really think about it. How bad it really is.
This is really heartbreaking news "Death toll from Japan's earthquake and tsunami reaches 10,035 people, with 17,443 still missing, national police say". CNN breaking news...
I feel sympathy to the people of Japan who lost their love ones.

Nuclear energy is supposed to be part of the new U.S. energy strategy. We are assured that the new plants will be fail safe. How safe are they in the event of an unforeseen disaster, like the Japanese quake?From Yahoo AP:Japan's nuclear safety agency said pressure inside one of six boiling water...

What exactly will happen if the nuclear power plant completely fails in Japan?With the aftermath of the earthquake in Japan affecting the nuclear power plant, how will a nuclear meltdown affect the rest of the world, if at all? Can the nuclear radiation travel to other continents if in can...

You see people lying on newspapers on hard gym floors covered with thin blankets and silver bags on their feet. You hear about a lack of heat in buildings to stave off the cold weather outside. You hear about people being left without overcoats, hats, gloves. You hear about...
