  1. When I watched the documentary on Chernobyl I thought it was a bit creepy because just thinking about what it would’ve been like to live around that area when the nuclear power plant exploded is awful and a bit freaky.

    The nuclear accident made people leave the area in Russia, but only like 200 people went back. The 200 people went back because they wanted to stay at their place than move to the different one that they didn’t know that well. They were willing to make a risk to go back and live in homes that they have lived in for many years. They had large backyard to growing food, they weren’t afraid of radiation they were scared about staving, this showed that they are willing to risk anything.
