You folks here at Double-T Nation are my friends, true I have never meet any of you face to face, but still we share a common love of the Red Raiders. I am sure we all follow different faiths and that there are some of you who claim no faith in any form of divine power. Whether you choose prayer or simply taking a moment to contemplate the greatest love a man can show for his fellow man, please remember these 50 men.
But 50 workers stayed behind, a crew no larger than would be stationed at the plant on a quiet spring day. Taking shelter when possible in the reactor’s control room, which is heavily shielded from radiation, they struggled through the morning and afternoon to keep hundreds of gallons of seawater a minute flowing through temporary fire pumps into the three stricken reactors, Nos. 1, 2 and 3, where overheated fuel rods continued to boil away the water at a brisk pace.

I pray they succeed and survive to live long an happy lives, but the realist in me thinks they are sacrificing their lives in the hope of adverting disaster.
