I think because so many people in Japan are Buddhist which is hardly a religion and more of a way of life, that this doesn't surprise. They don't live for jesus or a god, just for the well-being of the other. Really inspiring.
awesome. the dignity with which the japanese carried themselves, post earthquake, was and remains remarkable.
Truly selfless and inspiring. This is the kind of example that the rest of the world could learn from.
What Adrienne said is correct.
Very honorable. "High levels of radiation?"...depending on how high it is, they could be dealing with other painful symptoms, sooner. A handful of volunteers who are doing this would have lived into their 90s or 100s but are willing to sacrifice those years. This work may involve intense labor at times. I cannot imagine my grandparents being able to do this...what truly amazing people who have volunteered for this! I hope they are treated like heroes.
n absolutely amazing display of humanity.
Meanwhile here in the U,S., at a retirement home... some of the older residents don't understand why the Japanese would do that. After all they didn't work their entire lives, so they could die from a radiation leak they had nothing to do with...
On a more serious note..when I first heard about this I thought it was the bravest and boldest gesture the elder population could possibly do. We could use a little more of that view here in the U.S...
