I was so moved by your photos of the Evacuation Centers that I started a fund-raising/hope-raising project. I’m working with my neighborhood kids to do a project where we knit felted cranes and will send 1,000 of them to Japan with the wish for hope. We decided on the Evacuation Center you photographed which was for people with pets. Each crane also comes with a $5.00 donation to Mercy Corps. We thought even if people (and pets) were out of the Evacuation Center by the time we finish the cranes, it would still be a hopeful symbol for the kids in the school and honor what has happened in the building.

I was wondering if I could use two of your photos from a slide show on 3/17/2011 in my website for the project? I especially liked the one of a kitten peering through blankets, and the one of a dog eating from chopsticks.

Also, would you be able to tell me specifically where that Evacuation Center is so that we can send our finished cranes there eventually?

Thank you for your time. I appreciate your work.

I saw a report by Prof. Chris Busby that 400,000 cancers will develop in people that live within a 200 km zone. As someone who believed, and still believes in the promise of nuclear energy, my disappointment with Tepco, Japan and other governing bodies is severe. Accidents happen true, but this was a perfect storm waiting to happen, and I am furious

I want to show my respect to your Job

We brought some valuable lesson from this disaster
Theres no point on whats already happened
All we can do now is to prevent it coming about any more
And it’s time to think about alternative energy for our safety
