Everytime a take a look at the news, the death toll has risen another thousand or so people. The number as I write this is around 22,000 deaths. That also implies so many tens of thousands of injuries.
How can these numbers be comprehended? Almost nothing I can recall, related to one single event compares. The map of impact includes Sri Lanka, the entire eastern seaboard of India, as well as Thailand, Indonesia, Malaysia.
Incomprehensible sadness and grief.
