Japan’s Apollo 13 moment

There are some situations where ordinary people are called on to perform extraordinary feats of bravery and ingenuity as part of their job. These were the people who used to be referred to as the they, in the they provide the power.

I feel privileged and proud to live in a world when people are prepared to sacrifice their future for the sake of their fellow man and for the greater good of humanity.

From the somewhat incomplete picture I’ve seen on the news it appears that 50 courageous works of the Fukushima nuclear plant stayed at their posts after their plant was shaken and them engulfed in sea water. Had they acted to save themselves, how much worse would the disaster be now?

I’m sure the in coming days the sacrifice these workers made will become known. I have one question if it were you, what would you do.
