The above trailer for Stories from Tohoku is both heart-rending and heart-warming. It reminds us of the tragedy that struck the northeast Japanese coast on March 11, 2011 that has been too often overlooked in all of the discussion about the temporally-related, but far less devastating, events at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power station.
Atomic Insights has been guilty of a misguided focus on the wrong part of the event; I am deeply sorry for not spending enough time thinking about ways to help the survivors whose lives were disrupted by the earthquake and powerful tsunami wave.
It is good to hear that the people have not been forgotten and that other Americans are doing what they can to help the people and the area recover.
If you have DirectTV (channel 375) or the Dish Network (channel 9410), Stories from Tohoku is scheduled to air today. I would be grateful if someone was able to record the show and send me a DVD for personal use.
