Hope for those who remain and are trying to rebuild their lives, their villages, and their families after the tsunami that struck one year ago today.
And remember the South Asia Earthquake victims too. It’s winter in the Himalayas now, and there are still people there with inadequate or no shelter and food.
Sanskrit sloka (poetic saying/chant)
Where there is darkness, let there be light.
Where there is death, let there be life.

May all those that perished rest in peace for all time.

Redd & fellow FDLers if you’re interested in the Tsunami and its aftermath The Guardian has an excellent special report:
Guardian Tsunami special report
As well as the reports – often quite detailed – they have a slide show.
and a video report by James Meek on Banda Aceh a year after “Life among the ghosts”
one world, one planet, one peace.
