I am going to write some of my thoughts. Please don’t think it as what Japanese government announced or Japanese media reported. I am getting those information and my thoughts would be effected by them, but what I am going to write is only what I am thinking and feeling.
- I think you should be careful about the yellow sands from China rather than the radioactive materials from Fukushima if you are in the west of south part of Japan as there is the Prevailing westerly around the Northern Hemisphere. I think there is very small possibility for the radioactive materials to reach Hiroshima because of the wind, but we couldn’t stop yellow sands to reach here because of the wind. We have been warned sometimes to stay inside when so many yellow sands reached Japan if you have a problem on your bronchus.
- Well, it is possible for the radioactive materials to reach North America, Europe etc. because of the wind, but I believe it won’t be so dangerous when nuclear authorities say it is not dangerous by my own experience. When Chernobyl nuclear power plant accident happened, I was a girl, maybe 13 years old or so, (don’t guess how old I am now! lol ), and the distance between Hiroshima and Chernobyl is shorter than the distance between North America and here, but we were not warned any way and most of us are healthy adults now. I said “most of us”, not “all of us”, yes, but I believe you have lost some of your friends with any reason if you are older than mid 30.
- If you are in the Northern Hemisphere and your country has nuclear weapons, especially that if your country has taken a test for a new nuclear weapon inside of your country, I recommend to make sure to live west edge of your country.
- I have been frustrated about belated announcement by the government or TEPC, etc. I think there might be many things they didn’t say in front of camera among what they already knew, but I feel they didn’t make lies. They know very well that we can get any information on the internet, even in foreign language.
- I hope you don’t think me supporting Japanese government, nuclear power, TEPC. No. I don’t support them, but I think it is not a time to point a finger and yelled at them, but a time to let them put all their wisdom and power to make our situation better. We can do anything when everything is settled down, including to change our prime minister.
- I should say that I am bit mentally insecure since the disaster. I have recalled many memories of what I have heard about the bomb, what I experienced in Kyoto as a collage student living alone separated from the rest of my family when a big earthquake attacked Kobe in 1995, and what I saw and felt when I visited the Ground Zero in NYC. Sometimes, I can’t sleep well or can’t stop myself tearing when there is no reason to cry. I hope you don’t have such a mental problem.
Well, it’s time to go. Wish you a nice and pleasant day!
