This unfolding tragedy in Japan is very much gripping me, and I find myself constantly reading the news and following the situation very closely.
I have friends and colleagues who are in Japan, and my heart goes out to them, really. Perhaps I am the only one who is so worried amongst my circle of peers (colleagues and friends), but I find that this nuclear meltdown emergency can even directly affect Seoul in the worst case scenario. That is pretty worrying.
I am probably too preoccupied, but I cannot help myself. I like to know what is happening, addicted to news so to speak. Perhaps my video game playing time has been replaced with news reading time.
Deepest sympathies to all of those affected in Japan, and I sincerely hope for the best resolution to the rescue efforts, reconstruction, and the nuclear meltdown.
