The earthquake in Japan has left me without words to express my condolences to those that were lose and prayers for those who need to be saved. Each day that followed "Quake day" seemed to revealed an ever grater magnitude to the unfolding disaster as everyone started to get an idea of the full scope of what happened, and then the reactors began to fail. The reactors were designed to be ready for earthquakes and survive tsunamis, but not to be hit one after another in a one-two punch. With the looming radiation crisis, I can't imagen what kind of pain and fear Japan is going through now, I can only be thankful that my friends and their families are safe. My professor's family, my friend and the crew he was working with, and Ichigo the podcaster and his family.
