We were memorized with pictures of the huge wave that killed many in Japan and caused untold damage. We watch as two nuclear plants melted down. Two years later, the situation is not back to normal.
Large areas of land, including several towns, are still considered unsafe to radiation. High levels of radiation are emitted from parks, farmer’s fields, homes and office buildings. The decantation process has failed to make the place livable.
Some say the Japanese government should do more. Others believe the land should be cordoned off and allowed to heal on it’s own terms. I don’t have enough information to venture an educated thought on the best clean up process to follow.
The principle is, after a disaster some homes, stores, businesses and location an get back to the place they were before the disaster. Other times, not.
We need to consistently evaluate after a disaster how best to rebuild, or not. Rebuilding in a flood prone place may be unwise. Sodom and Gomorrah was never rebuilt after the Lord brought disaster.
Before committing to rebuilding, determine what has changed permanently, and then decide on the best course of action.
