We are in Japan right now. Yokosuka specifically, about 200 miles south of the nuclear plant. As of now we do have radioactive contamination in our air but we are told it is not enough to harm us at this point. But right now they are doing a voluntary government assisted departure. Just a few hours ago an article came out saying Tokyo's water supply is contaminated to the point that infants are not to drink it. But our water is still ok. I am not so much worried about me or my son with the way things are now, but I am worried about what if something happens and the future of my sons health. So I can either leave now, have it paid for and return WHEN it is SAFE, again paid for. There are so many people here that have already taken advantage of this. But I am sitting here debating because I hate thinking that next week things could be fine and we left and have no idea how long it will take to return. I also hate that people are making me feel guilty for having the gov. pay for it. We are a military family, my husband has been in for nearly 7 years. Since this ordeal started he has not had a day off, he works 12 hour shifts everyday. Would you go or stay? People keep saying those of us leaving are just taking a paid holidary back to the states. I don't feel like this is a holiday! I am afriad for my son, we will be away from my husband, we will be worried about his safety. I don't look at this like a vacation at all! I wish I could stay but I feel, as a mother of a small child, I have to look out for his best interest. So....
Would you stay or go?
I guess I will put it here since it is a current event.
