Twenty years ago.....

Least we not forget........

Paul Fusco's "Chernobyl Legacy"...you will not think the same, you will understand and you will not believe that such an injustice has been forgotten, disappeared without notice from history and from your memory...the images, words, stories, will remain indelible...

Please take the time to watch this photo-essay on the Chernobyl Legacy. It is one of the most moving and powerful photo-essay's I have ever seen. May we never forget what man can do to man, animal and the enviroment.

My dear friend, Always Chaos, found this photostream at Flickr.com to also share with us regarding the Chernobyl Legacy.

I viewed this series this morning after she pointed it out to me and I'm sitting here silent. It truly amazes me how the world moves forward without looking back. How many people are so vain in their day-to-day wants and in these photographs I see LIFE,,,,life being lived, despite the horrors that befell them.

Today, as everyday, I give thanks and realize that life is truly a blessing.

the worst in man bringing out the best in man. God bless those caregivers who give the love, attention and care they can to those so horribly changed by technological "advances"
