A Humbling Experience

Shot of the Day

My shot of the day comes from when children from Belarus were guests at Langholm Fire Station. These kids were victims from the fallout of the Chernobyl disaster in April 1986, the exact date of their visit I just can't remember.  

This was a very humbling experience and I wonder how many have survived to this day and if they have what state of health and quality of life do they have now.


  1. I read something a couple of years ago that there are less people dying from the Chernobyl meltdown, but that more people were suffering from genetic mutations and other after effects. There's a lot worse places than where we are Sandy.

    1. There are definitely worse places than where we are Jim.
      Havea Merry Christmas.

  2. Happy Christmas Sandy.

  3. and a merry Christmas to you and Alison.
