community, people and connection during dark days

I am not trying to freak people out but the situation in Japan is turning even worse - if that can be imagined. The chance of a meltdown at the Fukushima nuclear complex is increasing. There has been a fourth explosion. Radiation has/is already entering the atmosphere. It may not be the worst scenario come to life - we just don't know - but everything has changed - the world has changed.

What to do - send our love and hearts to the Japanese people and everyone else that will be affected. Make contact with our neighbours, friends and family - keep the communication strong and support each other - we need each other more than ever. Community, people and connection.

Aljazeera Net
5:59am Just before midnight, we reported that the ongoing crisis at Fukushima nuclear plant had been upgraded to a level 6 on the 7-point International Nuclear Events Scale. Andre-Claude Lacoste, president of France's ASN nuclear safety authority said:
We are now in a situation that is different from yesterday's. It is very clear that we are at a level six, which is an intermediate level between what happened at Three Mile Island and Chernobyl. We are clearly in a catastrophe
