The victims

I do not have cable, and yesterday i happened to be in a place where i could watch some of the footage of the aftermath of the tsunami and some of the effects on TV. I had made the decision to give some money to this effort, but i had decided to wait until everyone had forgotten the disaster and the money stops flowing before i give.

The footage i saw showed a village that had 4,000 people and only a couple hundred had survived. The area was complete flat for miles around. I am sure that it was not that way before the tsunami. Reading about this disaster does not show the effects that it has had as well as TV and pictures do.
