Making It Home
My recent decision to move my family back to
has been met with tons of positive support and good wishes. For this, my wife
and I are extremely grateful. The decision at the time was not an easy one. Japan
There have also been those who, albeit with the best of intentions, have questioned the wisdom of our return, particularly with three young children. I don’t resent the questions; I’m not offended by the concerns, necessarily based on information that is debatable. We don’t know ourselves just what the present situation is, what needs to be done or what the future holds. No one does. Even the so-called experts disagree.
We saw in
the radiation meters –
microsieverts per hour, displayed digitally on machines posted in parks, on
school grounds and throughout the center of town. We read updates in the
newspaper, day after day. We stared at the spectrum of opinion offered up in
cyberspace, mostly from people thousands of miles removed from the reality
those they are supposedly educating are living with every day. Fukushima
Amid all this, we saw the people of
going about the
business of living. Fukushima
This is, simply, what my wife and I have decided to do.
