30 Years ago.....

The 26th of April is near, and this year it will be 30 years since the accident at Chernobyl.
I still remember the weeks, and months after the disaster, and the all the precautions we had to take due to the fallout drifting across Europe.
I was 12 years old at the time of the disaster. That summer we were more indoors than usual.

For me personally this day I think of the brave men that gave their lives to contain the disaster, and commend them for their bravery, and sacrifice.

That day I was 90 km away in Belarus, a 2-year-old visiting his grandmother. I was whisked away as soon as it became known that something happened in Chernobyl. In later years I kept visiting during summers, but people had Geiger counters, and I was told not to play in the sandbox or other areas of elevated radiation.

I was 19 y.o. back then and it was during my military service ( army engineers).I was in Turnu Magurele, a small city in southern Romania,close to the Danube river. We learn about it on april 27,but the civilian population heard only rumors. Only around may 1st the media said something about an ''accident'' at an ''nuclear-electrical'' facility in Soviet Union.
Later, lots of measures were taken to protect the population and live stock , including the administration of potassium iodide in some areas, mostly in north-east.

I was in my 6th and final year of Military Service. Two years earlier
I had ended my active service onboard a Nuclear Powered Submarine
so I was quite familiar with Radiation, the dangers, the exposure limits.
I knew from this moment that Nuclear Energy would never be the same.

I was 9 and in my second grade of primary school. I saw it on the news and they considered handing iodine pills. That ofcouse, I never saw any of it.

It wasn't until there was internet and Discovery & National Geographic channel that I knew more what really happened. Also, it wasn't until the Stalker game that I knew about the Liquidators, the true heros who prevented worse.
