Japan Nuclear Meltdown

No nation in the world can be smug in face of the tragedy that is facing Japan.  An earthquake, a tsunami and a nuclear meltdown.  A Canadian city would be hard pressed to handle the medical emergency of simultaneous jumbo jet crashes, let alone the catastrophic triple whammy scenario the Japanese are handling with amazing reserve and profound professionalism.
It is shocking to learn that the government was told that it's nuclear reactors needed reinforcing 2 years ago and didn't act. There are countless government reports recommending infrastructures all over Europe and North America need improvement.
Japan will rise again. So much is possible.  Japanese learn from their mistakes.  They adapt.
My prayers go out to them in these days of need. I most admire those scientists, engineers and technicians who are risking their lives for the sake of others.
