Last night I sat in Wal-Mart's parking lot for 10 minutes listening to this episode of The Next Big Thing on NPR, specifically the Voices From Chernobyl excerpt. Heart-wrenching. I was only 4 at the time, and yet I vaguely remember seeing it on the news at the time. For most people, it's merely trivia knowledge stashed at the back of their brains. For the people of Chernobyl, it's chemically burned into their hearts, souls, and bodies. The book that the excerpts are from is moving to the top of my reading list.
