The Tsunami

The story of the tsunami that hit our island the day after Christmas, 2004, is one I've written before, so I won't be writing it again. However, it seems incomplete to share a series of stories about my coming of age in Malaysia without sharing this one. This is a part of my history, and, to a much larger extent, it's a part of the history of this region of the world. To understand the impact that the tsunami left on countless villages is to understand a small part of who the survivors are today. So, today, I ask, if you haven't already read it, please click over to this post to read about what happened on December 26, 2004.

Wow what a story! I have never heard anything so personal about a tsunami. It really puts things in perspective. Thanks for sharing!

What a devastation this must have been. I can't even imagine (and wouldn't want to) having to go through such a terrifying experience.
