The so-called Fukushima 50, the team of brave plant workers struggling to prevent a meltdown to four reactors are being repeatedly exposed to dangerously high radioactive levels as they attempt to bring vital cooling systems back online.

A mother of a 32-year-old worker said: “My son and his colleagues have discussed it at length and they have committed themselves to die if necessary to save the nation. He told me they have accepted they will all probably die from radiation sickness in the short term or cancer in the long-term.”

There is just amazing bravery and commitment in Japan right now. You can read the rest of the story from Fox News. Just almost brings tears to your eyes.
