heartbreakingly sad
pripyat and a lesson learned?

today’s picture breaks my heart every time i see it. To see such a picture in any circumstance would be sad but to know this is a picture of Pripyat and therefor yet another example of how the species of mankind can get it so devastatingly wrong sometimes just turns my heart over and rips it to shreds. It is pictures like this that make me force myself to find some good in the human race because there has to be balance for all the wrong, there has to be even a glimmer of right and it is when i find that one piece of good that i can relax. Many years ago before i had children i was often known to say i did not want to bring children into a world such as this; back then it was the eighties and it was often a sorry and soul destroying decade, growing up in the shadow of the IRA troubles and the sheer panic that sets in when faced with either being bombed by them or a nuclear war which was also a  threat that  forever darkened my already miserable childhood and i felt angry with the world, with mankind, but you know one day i was talking with someone older and wiser than i was and they said that they not only thought i would make a good mam but supposing the child i gave birth too was the next Ghandi or the next Mother Theresa and through talking with that kind and wise person i was helped to see that for all the wrong in the world beautiful children are born all the time and each one has the potential to save life and to improve life not just for themselves but for many perhaps even the whole world, and so the beauty and miracle of having children was restored to me and i am forever grateful to that one wonderful person whether my children grow up to be hair dressers, actors, lawyers, it doesn’t matter for each of them is their own miracle and i would not want my life any other way.

so lets look at the official background for pripyat and i for one pray that we use the experience of Pripyat and learn from it.

  1. Where’ve you been, Kizzy? I still remember Chernobyl… what a disaster. And about kids… they are miracles. Full of potential for doing great things, and I only hope that mine grow up to be good – it doesn’t matter to me what they become as long as they are good.

    On Chernobyl… we never really learn. Japan after the tsunami/earthquake is a perfect example. Nothing is foolproof. I’m crossing my fingers for fusion!

    1. hey trentle my dearest brother i have missed you and i have been absent i know i have been ill as always they have stuck me on the morphine now and back to hospital more surgery/explorations as they like to call them but you know the sun is shining though in a very windy way ^_^ and yes you are right fukushima showed us we still mistake nuclear power for some kind of safe fuel but i already accept they will use nuclear power the lesson i hope they learn is how to make it as safe as possible to be honest though it sounds awful for i was so so very greenham common in my youth full member CND and all that but there will be a struggle for power and we may have little choice but to look at either making natural power economic or resign ourselves to nuclear i have faith in the scientists i know they will make leaps and bounds in future fuel where my faith breaks down is the politicians who can never see further than where their next sponsor is coming from, it is to them that the future power either makes it or breaks it i can only hope science wins and common sense rules for now though i reckon i shall just go watch a horror movie ^_^ can’t beat a good scare or two for taking away the life problems ^_^ hope you and yours are enjoying good times my wonderful brother love and peace to you always x

      1. I think it’s already happening, people coming round to understanding that we have to preserve the future. I have great hopes that we’re going to figure this out.

        Be well, Kizzy! I hope you’re feeling better and getting over what ails you.

  2. Pity. It seems we never learn our lessons the first time. Or the second. Is anyone paying attention at all?

  3. Dear Kizzy,
    I remember when that happened. Such a terrible disaster, and only on reason why I so strongly oppose nuclear energy. Anyone who claims it is a “clean” source of energy has never tried to dispose of the waste. Such a powerful photo that says it all. From your comments I see that you have been experiencing health problems. I hope you feel better soon.

    1. hiya naomi lovely to hear from you as always and thank you for your kind words i am just home again from hospital and my plans are resting and watching horror movies i still have to go back to hospital but not yet i think they said 13 days or something but for right now i am loving the fact that it is half term so i have my kids at home and evryone is happy ^_^ hope you and yours are having good times and lets face it soon it will be christmas my fave time of the year i am excited already! love and peace to you and yours x

      1. Dear Kizzy,
        I am so glad you have your kids at home with you! That makes all the difference, doesn’t it? I can’t bear horror movies, which leave me with all those scary pictures in my head, but I guess they would be a good distraction.
        Love and peace, a swift recovery and a very Merry Christmas to you!

  4. I too remember Chernobyl. Even the sheep in Wales were said to be contaminated the radiation spread so far and quickly. Sadly we are unlikely to learn our lesson. We never do.

    I hope you make a good recovery, Kizzy. We miss your posts when you are suffering.

    1. thank you for your kind words andrew it is always lovely popping on here i am lucky enough to be home from hospital a little exhausted as they put me through some rather challeneging tests but i have roughly two weeks before i have to go back to hospital and luckily it is half term so my houses is happy home filled with kids and dogs ^_^ hope you have good times love and peace be with you ^_^

  5. I remember Chernobyl and the unimaginable devastation, and remember thinking about the survivors and wondering how they could possibly even begin to move forward knowing their futures would be full to the brim with nothing but reminders; physical, emotional, environmental, developmental, reminders…that life would never be the same. The effects will be seen in its people and in the land for thousands of years. The photo you chose could not possibly be more indicative of how I would imagine looking at that kind of future would feel. It is utterly heartbreaking and completely overwhelming.

    1. thank you my gorgeous rhinda beautiful words and elegantly put as always i was born an optmist and so i shall always believe in the wonder of mankind the scope and the depth we have it within us to improve as well as destroy and i shall be unwavering in my belief that the scientists will push us forward and i am hoping the politicians will have no choice but to see sense i will always always try to see that there is still good or at least common sense somewhere along the way^_^ love and hugs to you my wonderful one x

      1. I shall add my hopes and prayers to yours…it can’t hurt. Love you and sending all good thoughts your way. I hope to read that you are feeling much much better soon my friend. Take care of you…xoxo
