Regarding Rob Gilhooly’s April 3 article, “Crews driven by sense of mission“: The noble “Fukushima 50” and others who risk sacrificing themselves for the well-being of others as they quietly do what they can to contain the ruined reactors at the Fukushima No. 1 nuclear power plant are true heroes.

I pray every day for the alleviation of their suffering and for their ability to do their work without fear and illness. Please tell them that they do not toil alone in darkness. Many of us around the world are following their progress and support them.
