Sadness and Grief

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.

Ways to help.

I may be misunderstanding your "eastern seaboard of India" comment but actually its the Southern most part of India that has been devastated by the tsunamis. My home is in Chennai(Madras), one of the worst affected areas.

The map I saw showed the entire coast of India being affected from the northeastern coast down around the southern tip which you describe. I hope for the best for your family, friends, and neighbors.
