Please Dad, Come Back Alive

March 13th, 2011

“My dad went to the nuclear plant. I never heard my mother cry so hard. People at the plant are struggling, sacrificing themselves to protect you. Please Dad, come back alive.” – tweet from Nekkonekonyaa, daughter of a Fukushima worker

 

As a father with daughters, what you wrote

Brought tears to my eyes and a lump to my throat.


I too hope, Nekkonekonyaa, that your brave father survives,

And that he and the others make it home to their children and wives.
