It was a tragedy. So many thousands of people died while frolicking at the beach.All sandy beaches were destroyed..My heart goes out to them after seeing all the images on TV. Scores of dead children pictures.. I kept thinking that while I was nicely tucked in my bed, there were people out there searching for their missing friends and relatives. I cant help much but if there is any organization that needs donation, I would gladly help. Why is there no system to inform the people about the tsunami? Authorities always act only when something major happens.sigh..This just proves one thing, anything could happen to anybody.Even the Thai king lost his grandson. I will not worry anymore about whether I will have enough money for retirement. Think enjoy what I have is more important.
I'm kinda worried too. I have a friend who is doing volunteer work in India now but he didnt say which part he is in. I hope he is alright.
I was planning a trip to Phuket in January during the Hari Raya Haji holidays.. I dont think I will be able to go there anymore. Phi Phi island is almost destroyed and Patong Beach too. It will take some time to rebuild the hotels and beaches. An earthquake at sea is more devastating than anything else.
It can kill across oceans.
