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.

Second Blog of Today...
There are a group of brave men and women will call them TEAM RESCUE who for the past four months have been entering the exclusion zone in Fukushima and rescuing our less fortunate fury and non-furry friends who are trapped in the exclusion zone. Mr. H, their leader, and his team of rescuers enter the exclusion zone weekly , crossing the blockade and risking their lives to save dogs, cats, and other animals who have either lost their masters or who are in need of care and being removed from the radiated area. Below is an excerpt of a Facebook chat followed by pictures. If you're interested in doing something please contact me directly via Email. Thank you.
Excerpt of Facebook Conversation:
I am in XXXXX. I am still scheduled to be in Fukushima starting September 21st through the 24th.
We should figure out a place to meet there. I know it is over a month away. But I think it is important to organize before hand.
