Chernobyl Legacy Video

The Chernobyl Legacy by Paul Fusco is a really tough video to watch, yet it is hauntingly beautiful. More profound than the greatest poetry. It's not comfortable to watch. Not at all. You will come away changed. Watch it. Immerse yourself in something that could affect every human being. I put it on my blog because it moved me to tears.

(I just realized that chernobyl means wormwood in Russian, the subject of my post yesterday. Was it coincidental? I don't know.)

Typing only to let you know I watched the movie. Thank you for bringing it to our attention.

Beyond that I am speechless.

Hi Marie,

Hope you are having a lovely summer and are keeping cool.

I know irrelevant, but friendly,

DBAnnie, Cloudscome, Mia--Thanks for watching the video. I thought it was timely, what with that pesky epleted uranium in Iraq and assorted threatened nuclear strikes. We're just one big nuclear family now, aren't we?

Joy-Seems like lovely summers of "keeping cool" are a thing of the past...but thank you for that bit of nostalgia (LOL).
