The Tsunami

I, like probably most of you, have watched and read the shocking developments with the lethal and devastating earthquake/tsunami combo that has now killed over 120,000 people. This photo is a before/after shot of the shoreline of Banda Aceh in Indonesia.

Watch a home video of a wave coming in.

Pray for these folks. After going through 3 hurricanes in Florida, they seem strong breezes compared to the devastation in the South Pacific.

Do something. You probably know there’s some stuff you can do to help out. There’s been plenty of reporting on ways to help. Kudos to Google for making it simple to help and Amazon for partnering with the Red Cross. Campus Crusade has also set up a way to give.

Connect. I read today that one company is offering free text messaging to and inside the effected Asian countries.
