Hello and I know this might be off topics.
As a lot of people I followed infos about Japan the last days. I think it is hard to imagine to be there and stand this catastrophe in all consequences. I know there is a lot of problems elsewhere in the world.
I just like to try to take the eyes of our "small group" to mechanisms in such cases: no secure information about what really happened to try to keep people calm.
No real solutions on how to solve problems evacuating millions of people. Just "trust the winds are going the right way?" "It's raining in my neighbor village so I am not touched?"
Think of thousands of people having lost everything? And the result is et al: prices for Nikon products raise?
Let us try to beat this: check red cross, I will spend money to them.
I will send an email to the companies who raise prices because of this crisis.
And in first place: let us send emails to our governments to stop to play around with risks: "Sorry, but the last earthquake was only 7.9". And what about the waste?
Till now there is no place in the whole world to be sure to spare the rest of the of the plants in a safe place. For millions of years.
We learned a lot about the power of internet in the last few months. Think of Tunisia, Egypt, and the north africa and near east region.
I know we are a small group. But a house is build stone by stone. And I think right now, it might be an overall historic moment and chance when we react and declare and ask to the people who are responsible for the goals for the future what we expect.
I know this might be a dream. Right now I got a "No". But trying to react, I might get a "Yes". So the only chance to get a better situation is "an overall response of us".
I am not sure about the weather the day atomic sites blow up in Europe. Or in any place in the rest of the world.
Let us try to fight.
Sorry for being off topics. NO! I am not sorry about this. I think it is a great chance in this moment. Let us try to take it.
You know the old Beatle song: "All together now"?
I know it is german, but I think pics explain a lot:
