We want to pay tribute to all of victims and to rescuers who in that day and in subsequent days risked their lives to save Europe from the radioactive contamination.

We join our minds to yours regarding the consequences of this disaster, nearby and far, in the past as well as now and the future since that event is far from ending.
All of us will be dead that it will still be a charge for our decendants.

I recall stories of rescuers who died within minutes of entering the building and were followed by more rescuers who knew they would never leave the building alive either. Their courage is overwhelming. Europe is not the only region indebted to those brave souls. The entire world was spared huge suffering because of their monumental sacrifice.

Every industry can have accidents. These industries are manned for the most part, by caring, responsible individuals, who as you said, will sacrifice their own lives for the safety of the general public.

They will purposely go into harms way to try to prevent a horrific catastrophe that could potentially harm millions, knowing full well, they probably will not be coming out.

Sadly, you don't hear about this kind of bravery. If you do, it's just a brief flash in the pan the lame stream media streams for a quick headline, then moves on, leaving their heroic deeds to die off with the heros who performed them.

Chernobyl, 3 Mile Island, Japan, there WILL be more places to this list. With as many nuke plants as we have, it's just a matter of time.

Unfortunately humans, as a general trait, tend to forget those sacrifices made so that others may live. (no Im not just talking military either, but any willful sacrifice of life)

Whether we are friends or enemies, whether we agree or not on politics or whatever... every society has people who will make sacrifices when the need comes to protect fellow man.

It would be nice if there was an international 'Memorial Day' in remembrance to all those people who gave their lives to save their fellow countrymen from sure ill fate. Just one day a year, when the entire world could put aside it's petty difference, and pay tribute to those who gave everything to protect us all. Whether it's a power plant worker, who ran back into a melting reactor room to try to shut it down, or the fireman who ran into a burning building trying to save a child, they both are heros and any deed like that needs to be remembered.

Just thinking out loud.
