Indian Ocean Tsunamis
You know, living in America, I think it is difficult to relate to something like this. We've never had something like this happen. We've had 9/11, which was terrible, don't get me wrong, but this is like 26 9/11's, all in less than twenty minutes, with no one to blame or retaliate against.
It saddens me every time I open up my little Firefox browser and look at CNN (which is my homepage). When it first happened, it was a little blurb to the right that said 11,000 had died. Then that number went to 20,000, then to 28,000 then to 60,000, and now, as I look at CNN, it is at 80,000. What is even more unsettling is that they are predicting the number to continue to rise.
I guess all we can do is wait and hope.
