A large explosion has shaken the Fukushima-Daiichi nuclear power plant in Japan today, damaged already by Friday's massive earthquake and ensuing tsunami, the evacuation zone having expanded. For more information, please visit http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-asia-pacific-12720219

As reported on Friday, the core of a reactor inside Fukushima was in need of cooling due to a mechanical failure caused by the damaging tremors, leading to Saturday's new critical consequence..

An extensive relief operation is currently unfolding, as a result of the 8.9-magnitude earthquake and subsequent tsunami, thought to have killed at least 1,000 people and destroyed towns and villages. … Yesterday’s tsunami waves reached Hawaii as well, although they are reported to have been less severe than feared. However, tidal wave warnings covering all Pacific countries are still unfortunately available…

Our prayers are continuing to be with the distressed people of Japan, their family and friends the world over, and with our planet as a whole during these very tragic times. Keep the faith, and know that you are all in our thoughts and prayers, strongly hoping no more undesired events of this nature and magnitude are to occur… We are sensitive to your great suffering.


Kind regards..

.....

The Earth is dying..

As you may be aware, a very intense 8.8-8.9 magnitude earthquake, followed by a vehement tsunami of over 30 ft occurred Friday, March 11, 2011 in the Pacific Ocean, 81 miles east of Sendai, Honshu, Japan. The quake is reported to be the largest to hit Japan in over 100 years. A series of significant aftershocks have ensued 10 minutes away from each other, of magnitudes 7.0, 7.4 and 7.2 ones. More than 40 other aftershocks followed, of magnitude 5.0 or larger, in few hours after the first seism. News reports by Tokyo Broadcasting System indicate that at least 300 people have died, 398 are missing in six different prefectures, with numbers from both categories on the rise. The aftermath of the earthquake included the flooding of parts of Port of Tokyo, soil liquefaction in Tokyo Disneyland's carpark, the suspension of Shinkansen bullet train services in and out of Tokyo, as well as of Narita and Haned Airports, an estimated 23,000 people being stranded there. An oil refinery of Cosmo Oil Company caught fire by the quake at Ichihara Chiba Prefecture to the east of Tokyo, many nuclear reactors getting shut down, and the core of a reactor in Fukushima is in need of cooling due to a mechanical failure, washing away homes. Tens of thousands of people have been evacuated from the area, a fire also bursting at the Inagawa nuclear plant in Miyagi Prefecture. Additionally, Japan’s transport has been severely affected.

The tsunami following the earthquake has led to a warning issued for Japan's Pacific coast and at least 20 countries, including the entire Pacific coast of North and South America from Alaska to Chile. A 10-meter-high tsunami was observed at Sendai Airport, which has been flooded, the turbulent waves sweeping away cars, boats, buildings, ricefields and engulfed towns in their upsurge. It has been reported that a 4-meter-high tidal wave hit Iwate Prefecture in Japan and a 0.5-meter-high wave hit Japan's northern coast. And the backwash of this catastrophe is far from being ended.. The waves had reached outside Japan, as well, including Guam and Hawaii, although officials reported no damage or injuries.

We are keeping Japan (the dead, the surviving victims…) and the rest of the world in prayers. Today, for Japan, it certainly has been the end of the world.. May God help us all, for it appears that nature is repeatedly and mercilessly rebelling against us who have depleted it.'How much more abuse from man can she stand?'... in the wisely empathic words of Marvin Gaye.

Dear Friends,

 

We hope you are doing well..

 

Below, is a new video courtesy of The Silenced Truth's member, Ola Stapnes Hunnestad (thank you very much, Ola), which he added to TST's YouTube account a few days ago. It is a new tribute to the one whom many are missing, one who contributed with so much to the world, even when the world let him down. He persevered in love, and we wish you all to be as blessed. We hope you will enjoy this dedication as much as we are. ..

Additionally, The Silenced Truth is bringing another lovely tribute to your attention anew:  although US-based magazine, Rolling Stone, in their characteristic way, labeled this effort as the 7th biggest musical disasters of 2010, the posthumous official video for song 'Hold My Hand', sung by Michael Jackson and Akon is one to be appreciated. The magazine has remained a media tool which has been emphasizing style over substance since the 1990's, to paraphrase American author and journalist, Mr. Samuel G. Freedman. 'Hold My Hand' is an uplifting piece of music that Jackson didn't live to see released, but which was dear to his heart. 'This life don't last forever'', says the first verse. The message? Extend a helping/comforting hand to the other, don't choose isolation, but try to practice togetherness more, the most efficient way to surmount an obstacle. Tomorrow is never promised.. Try to make the most of it (within the moral terms) today. ... Try.

March 9, 2010: Some Mentionings and Thank You's.. PDF Print E-mail

 

Hello, dear members,


Thank you for visiting us and for all of your kind messages.. as always.

We would like to let you know that starting from this past February 19, American singer, bassist, composer, member of The Jackson 5, and Michael’s older brother, Jermaine Jackson, has been following our tweets on (@SilencedTruthMJ). His Twitter address is (@jermjackson5). Thank you very much, Jermaine, for finding us and deciding to follow us, we are most honored and grateful..

Second of all, we would like to thank Helen Mitchell - for all of your thoughtful, inspiring words and valued support you have periodically expressed in your letters to TST.. Helen has been introduced to our site through Matt Semino, ‘a New York City based attorney and legal analyst who reports on headline-grabbing celebrity and entertainment news for Huffington Post, where, alongside Charles Thompson, has produced some valued, remarkable articles on Michael Jackson, such as Dr. Conrad Murray Trial, a Bitter Pill to Swallow’, or Michael Jackson, the Wounded Messenger’, both of which being contained in the ‘Remember…’ sections of TST, the latest one, Remember More.., (regularly being updated for your reading pleasure. Moreover, all sections will be updated in the following months, starting with Highlights of Interviews, so stay tuned for that)..

We are greatly humbled by and appreciative of your knowledge of us. Of all of your’s visiting here and influencing TST to continue existing and offering to you all what we perceive to be simply valuable information on Michael Jackson’s humanness, as well as opinions and accounts on behalf of those who have been inspired and/or close friends of him. Truthful testimonies which the media are not interested in disseminating for the public - to be blunt, yet realistic - particularly when he was alive and.. in need of a more positive, unbiased, normal and accurate perception and representation of him. ..

Pierce Brown, Content Manager of SR Education Group, kindly sent out his message appreciation for the “collection of resources” available on The Silenced Truth. Thank you, Mr. Brown. We are reciprocating this humbling recognition by posting the below link Mr. Brown attached to his message, consisting of a concise, yet compregensive article covering rhetoric, composition and public speaking, that, he enthuses, “could help many of your users”. http://www.guidetoonlineschools.com/library/rhetoric-composition. We are certain it will, and thank you again.

Up until next time, we are leaving you with a song by The Jacksons off of their (sadly) almost ignored studio album, ‘Goin’ Places’, which was recorded between December 1976 and August 1977, and produced by Kenneth Gamble & Leon Huff, Dexter Wansel and The Jacksons wonderfuls. “Man Of War” is the title of the said song, written and composed by K. Gamble/L. Huff, the lyrics of which are posted in our Relief Songs section. Pay close attention to its message and Michael’s particular raw, crisp and personal interpretation to which many are accustomed. On this occasion, we are, most likely though, in vain pleading to the men of war deliberately ruining our world to ‘study peace, ‘cause peace is what we need’. In the long end, please remember, everybody, no matter the strife you are being oppressed by, God will make certain that ‘truth is gonna win...(and) wrong will never conquer right.”

January 19, 2011: On a Possible New Honor for Michael.. PDF Print E-mail

 

Hello, dear visitors/friends,


Please join in signing the following petition requesting that the Grammy Awards should create a humanitarian award in honor of Michael Jackson - an artist who had led a fully charitable life, dedicated to the well-being of the other, especially from less advantaged categories.

As per http://www.thepetitionsite.com/1/gra...itarian-award/, the idea first appeared on a thread, ‘A Proposition for the MTV Awards’, in http://www.amazon.com/’s ‘Michael Jackson Community’, as of August 2010.

The afore-mentioned petition's sponsor is D. Earle, who graciously referenced The Silenced Truth as the informative source supporting this new goal in the ... cleaning of Jackson's too often and unjustly smeared a name. The action's end is to reach 1,000 signatures at most from those interested. ...


Let’s hope for yet another productive outcome, and thank you to all, in advance.


Kind regards,

TST Team
