~*~ Event Updated on 1/12/14 to include more ways to respond with hope and inspired action ~*~ Fukushima is a turning point event in human history. The stakes are high. Much remains unknown and uncertain. One thing that is known is that clean-up will take many years. We cannot know the long term effects this will have. What are we to do?
