Radiation Doesn’t Scare Me!

We all know about the earthquake in Japan that resulted in a very devastating Tsunami. One of the big problems that this tsunami created was the destruction of nuclear power plants, and the radiation that they are now giving off. Despite the possibility of death, some Japanese people refuse to leave their home because of the radiation. In a city called Futaba, the government is forcing people to evacuate because of the threat and still some families will not comply. It is believed that moving and changing environments seems like more of a problem to some of these families. There are other instances around Japan in which people simply will not leave their homes; an 85 year old woman whose family’s house is just 24 miles from an affected plant, refuses to leave. Although it may seem foolish, you must admit that these select people have courage.
