The death toll (over 120,000 to date) from the Indonesia tsunami is staggering. We’re fortunate in Eastern Canada that the worst we can complain about is snowstorms or subdued hurricanes coming up the coast of the Atlantic. I think most people can’t relate to the devastation that has occurred in East Asia. It’s unimaginable. The worst natural event I’ve been through was sitting through a short earthquake while in Montreal over 10 years ago. Everything shook for 10 seconds, and all I thought was “Cool!”
Amazon.com has set up an American Red Cross Disaster Relief Fund, which has raised over six million dollars so far. Wow.
