The Asean Tsunami Heros

What happened on 26 December 2004 was an unprecedented, global catastrophe. It requires an unprecedented, global response. For the world, it is the largest natural disaster the world has had to respond to.

From the nameless fishing villages of Sumatra to the modern tourist resorts of Thailand; from the beaches of Sri Lanka and India to the coastal communities of the Maldives and Somalia; the disaster was so brutal, so quick, and so far-reaching, that we are still struggling to comprehend it.

It seems at times like a nightmare from which we are still hoping to awaken. Except that for millions of people in twelve affected countries spanning two continents, and for tens of thousands of visitors from forty nations around the world, this nightmare is devastatingly real.

We will never know the exact magnitude of how many men, women and children perished on 26 December, and in the days that have passed since then. The real figure is likely to exceed one hundred and fifty thousand.

This tragedy has also set a stage for the extra ordinary amongst us to show there metal. Go the extra mile to save life’s and show a character of self less sacrifice to help others. Let’s use this Blog to find and report all such hero’s. "The Hero’s Of Asian Tsunami Disaster"
