Prayers for Japan at 3 Mile Island

2011-03-28 16:46

Pennsylvania - The 32nd anniversary of the partial meltdown at Three Mile Island is being marked at the plant with prayers for Japan.

WGAL-TV reports about 30 people gathered early on Monday outside the nuclear plant near Harrisburg for a vigil to remember the worst commercial nuclear power plant accident in US history.

An equipment failure and operator errors led to partial core meltdown at the plant's Unit 2 reactor around 04:00 on March 28 1979.

Those gathered outside the plant offered their prayers for tsunami-devastated Japan, especially people forced from their homes by the crisis at the Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear complex.

Three Mile Island spokesperson Ralph DeSantis says the Unit 2 disaster has taught plant operators many valuable lessons.

    great. lets close our eyes and talk like crazy people to some invisible man in the sky while the world crumbles around us. I think the difference between the average religious zealot and a truly enlightened person, is about the same as the difference between a chimpanzee and an average person.

      Well k1db14ck you have just proven your total lack of enlightenment not to mention your complete lack of respect for other people. Trying growing up a little and removing the blinkers. Oh and ask your Mom to teach you respect.

      Wonder to which god they are praying Madelane? We have invented some 2870 gods to date - that is only since the beginning of recorded history 6000 years ago... Since we are the ones with the blinkers, can you guide us Madelane?
