Conflicting stories are being reported since the terrible earthquake, tsunami and resulting difficulties with nuclear power plants in Japan. The loss of life and property is terrible. News has reported the loss of life irreplaceable, the loss of property that took decades to build and the loss of critical electric power crippling basic lifestyles and recovery as beyond belief.

Going beyond the hundreds of thousands without homes and those with injuries, limited food and water; we see an industrialized nation that has been crippled in a different way, one that may be struggling with recovery in its own right.
