So while news broadcasters notify the public of humanity's luck that the winds are blowing the radiated air out to sea instead of over human populated areas, instead of breathing a sigh of relief, or celebrating, rather I cry for the sea. I cry for the air, the wind, the sea and all the creations that exist because we are all related. – Krystalline Kraus
