I've avoided writing about this, because I don't know what to say.
It's fucking horrifying. I watched one video of the tsunami and had to turn it off. It turned my stomach. I don't deal well with these huge, abstract things that I have no control over. I cannot wrap my head around the thousands dead, the hundreds of thousands homeless, without food, without shelter, half a world away.
The reactors. Sweet jesus fuck, those fucking nuclear reactors.
It all terrifies me. If I think too much I lose sleep. I get sick to my stomach. So I try not to think about it. That might make me a bad person, I don't know.
I saw posts today from people who said that this was due payback for Pearl Harbour, and I want to punch these ignorant redneck douchebags in the throat. If this is "God's" payback for Pearl Harbour, then they may want to duck and cover because I'd hate to see what he has in store for America for bombing the everloving shit out of Nagasaki and Hiroshima.
What the fuck is wrong with people?
Times like this all I can do is hug my kids and get down and kiss this giant expanse of rock we call the Canadian Shield.
