"Children had to part with their favorite toys. People had to leave everything, from photos of their grandparents to cars. Their clothes, cash and passports has all been changed by state authorities. Incredibly, people had homes, motorcycles, garages, cars, country houses, they had money, friends and relatives. People had their lives. Each had their own niche. And then in a matter of hours , their entire world fell to pieces."
"After a few hours trip in an army vehicle, they stood under a shower, washing away radiation. Then they stepped in a new life, naked with no home, no friends, no money, no past and with a very doubtful future."
The following I borrowed, from my daughter atrueoriginall. It depicts the possibility of something quite similar that could certainly take place in Southern California. Those in Los Angeles should really heed these words she spoke of and stand up to the plate with your local government. And let me say it before any of you do. "As if it matters", their hands are flat from sitting on them for so long. Do it anyway!
Here's a good "END TIME" scenario.
Considering that they are speaking of a port in the next paragraph, I would peg Los Angeles because we have enemies and it is one of the largest ports in the world. San Francisco on the other hand is more a fishing port, which is currently changing, but not anywhere near the degree of the Los Angeles port. Thousands of containers are taken off ships daily in Los Angeles. Containers are only check "inside" randomly. Can you imagine just one of them having a nuclear weapon in it.
17 For in one hour so great riches is come to nought. And every shipmaster, and all the company in ships, and sailors, and as many as trade by sea, stood afar off, 18 And cried when they saw the smoke of her burning, saying, What city is like unto this great city!
Thank you Ms. squweekie, and you're very welcome.
I know i read the whole thing too. Awful things huh. Another passage that affected me was the one about the playground and amusement park being right next to the reactor and first hit. Mothers were running around screaming in a giantic cloud of radioactive dust desperately searching for their children. The pictures of the area are especially chilling.
We can only pray that mankind is to learn from the terrible mistakes it makes, but we already know this is not true, and history always has a way of repeating itself. Sadly i'm sure it will happen again, i can only hope that it doesn't though.
