With an ongoing nuclear crisis, there is no shortage of news on the aftermath of the March 11th earthquake and tsunami in Japan. To be honest, some of it is too much for me. But, in the midst of a barrage of reports fearing nuclear fall out, I found this piece describing CNN correspondent Kyung Lah’s perspective on the devastation in Japan.
In the piece, which ran in the Huffington Post, Kyung Lah describes observations of and interactions with the most vulnerable affected, the elderly and children. She also makes an astute observation about the “culture gap” that may explain the “translation issues” faced by foreign press working to help us understand what’s happening on the ground in Japan.
Though sad, it’s a good read that helped me better understand what’s going on, as opposed to just making me feel scared. I thought you might be interested.
