Two Years Post Tsunami
Now as I sit hanging out on the web I see several stories remembering those who lost a great deal and how much progress still needs to be made. The International Herald Tribune has an excellent photo gallery displaying images of smiles from young girls like the two above whirling around in a playground (a donation by a relief agency), people playing volleyball on Thailand's Patong beach, and then sad images as well. Most of Thailand's beaches have been able to rebuild quickly, but other areas in Sri Lanka & Indonesia have been left to slowly pick up the pieces due to misuse of money (millions) and government corruption.
A drill system is being practiced across to Southeast Asia for future disasters and to commemorate the 9.3 earthquake two years back.
