Staggering loss

The news about the aftermath of last week’s earthquake and subsequent tidal waves just continues to get worse. BBC News is reporting that more than 68,000 are confirmed dead and the Red Cross is saying that the toll could be more than 100,000 soon.

Seeing the video of the waves crashing into the resorts is sad — no one on holiday would’ve anticipated such a life-altering disaster. Hopefully, relief organizations can help alleviate the situation soon.
