Possible Nuke Meltdown In Japan

We know there are thousands dead and missing in Japan after the tremendous earthquake, which was upped from an 8.9 MAG to a 9.1 early this evening. Our prayers go out to those affected by the earthquake and all it has brought with it afterward, especially those living by the nuclear power station in question tonight. Japan has only a few hours to get the reactor cooled, and if they are not able to they are preparing for the worst. People are already evacuated from the region, and Japan may be dealing with this for many years to come. This is a terrible thing that has happened, and what I saw on twitter today made me sick!

There were people on twitter trending Hurricane Katrina! How on earth could you possibly make yourself think that is anywhere near funny, amusing, or necessary on a day like today? The problems that Japan is having is not to be compared to the tragedies of this nation, because both are tragedies in their own right. We do not feel the pain f the Japanese, but we felt the pain of those living in the Gulf region during Katrina. I understand that mindset, but at the end of the day this is about the Japanese and NOT about America. There are some people in this country that are so stuck up that for 10 minutes they cannot forget about themselves or what is going on in their lives to try and help someone who needs it. You people make me sick! 

There is so much coming in every hour about this tragedy, and if I get an update in the next few hours before I go to sleep, I will make sure to come over and update the blog as well. I cannot wait to get back to the radio show next month, and hoping it may be sooner than that if work goes the way I want it to for the next week or so. Again, keep the Japanese people in your prayers and if you feel the need to donate, make sure you know who you are donating to.
