NOT TO BE FORGOTTEN is a photographic journey that will be made by photographer Mark Paul over 50 days from August 8th to September 24th, 2011 covering 300 Miles on foot (actually closer to 600), and 45 districts affected by the Tōhoku earthquake, tsunami, and current nuclear crisis. He will document the inner strength of the Japanese people as they deal with the aftermath of the tragedy. Every man, woman, child, and animal have a story that deserves to be told. The victims feel voiceless.
This important article was sent to me from my friend Kaci Christian about Fukushima and the clean up. Please read this article in full. I included a link to it.
