These men who are working to shut down the reactors are not being paid enough considering they are working to save thousands upon thousands of lives at the risk of their own lives and future health. How can you put a dollar amount on that?

One of the things I recently discovered is that even after a reactor is shut down, maintenance must go on and on until who knows? Considering the number of earthquakes, volcanoes, and tsunamis in that area the reactors probably should not have been built. This is not the first incident of a reactor meltdown in Japan.

This should be a wake up call to the rest of us.

There is so much pain and suffering going on in Japan! I've considered the men who are trying to stablilize the nurclear power plants as heroes but never gave a thought to their wives and families. The anxiety they're experiencing must be overwhelming! Watching and waiting can be sheer torment. I hope their problems are brought under control soon and that they don't suffer any major consequences as a result of their exposure to radioactive materials.
