It’s Not All Mary Poppins

One Year Later

Today is the one-year anniversary of the tsunami that swamped so much of Southeast Asia. While I know that there are many agencies still working over there, World Vision is the one with which I am most familiar. Because they’d been in the area for 40 years before the tsunami hit, they had supplies, staff, and administrative infrastructure at the ready. If you’d like to see a bit of the things going on, here’s a link to a two-minute video clip.

Did you know that in some areas, the tsunami killed four times as many women as men?

Out of tragedy springs hope – what else is left? From realized hope grows wisdom, strength, resilience, and joy.
