Preview

Sometimes a crisis tests one's mettle and fires one's soul. This chapter presents a story of coping with fallout, Chernobyl-style. These reflections are offered from the author's journal, written while living in Germany during the Chernobyl disaster, which rained radioactivity throughout Europe, and especially in southern Germany. It was his American nuclear epiphany in Europe, which caused him to consider the whole culture of radiation he had been raised in since birth.

Keywords: Chernobyl disaster; radiation; radioactivity; crisis; Germany
