Tsunami Tragedy

Posted on: December 29, 2004

The Asian Tsunami disaster is just absolutely devastating. In the past two days alone, I have come to learn that a family of distant relatives of mine have gone missing at Phi Phi Island. Two of my brother’s friends have since been confirmed dead, as have 5 relatives of a friend of mine. Thankfully, my dad’s French business partner is safe, though he’s still stuck in Phuket.

We’re praying for the best, but it’s hard when the death toll continues to rise. The entire death count thus far for the entire South Asia region stands at 55,000. It’s absolutely tragic, like a whole slice of the world’s population has just been wiped out – just like that.

I posted more about this at the Bangkok Metroblog. You can read more about it here.
