Tears of the earth

I don’t know what to make of the “Tsunami incident” in southeast Asia; it’s a terrible thing, one that I cannot personally identify with. That is, I can by no means even begin to understand how the survivors must feel.

Yes, several of my countrymen lost their lives; many families have been destroyed, friends and loved ones lost. But we’re not the only ones who have lost. Poor people, struggling to survive the challenges of everyday tasks such as finding food and what not, have been severly affected by this catastrophy as well. Children have lost their parents, their brothers and sisters. Dreams have been shattered, futures swept away like a dirty rug.

It is a high price to pay for mankind to co-operate.
