Chernobyl April 21, 2011, Via France 24: Read It And Think: Are you a prospective evacuee?


I have learned a lot from this courageous reporting. I wish more people would understand the fate of the Atoms for Peace, upon the very existence of our home. Can we consider ourselves prospective evacuees?
That is the selfish question that grew in my mind: could we and people we know, care for,  love, or perfect strangers, that could have become best friends, could we become evacuees? Like the tens of thousands of Japanese families, protected from returning to their radioactive homes by barbed wire, barricades and police guards.
