We are facing an unprecedented threat to humanity. In the next 18 months the world will watch while Fukushima begins clean up efforts to move a huge stock-pile of damaged and highly-radioactive fuel rods to ‘safer’ ground. Many of us will not see during our lifetime the outcome of this disaster and it’s almost unimaginable what the fallout will be to all life on this planet.

My little grandson wrote a poem today for “Habitat for Humanity”. He called it HOME, never have such simple sweet words pierced my heart so sadly. I pray we all stay safe.

A Home

A home is a peaceful, loving, warm place to go to.

Where you have a big cozy bed to sleep in,

where you have food and water.

A safe place to go to after a long day at school, where you have lots of friends and family, and lots of happiness.
