Indonesian Earthquake and Tsunami
With the exposure provided by the internet and instant media, the impact of natural disasters is now felt world wide. Living in Colorado, we are sheltered from the natural disasters that impact many areas of the world, such as typhoons and tsunamis. I am amazed at the recent destruction that occurred in Indonesia and Samoa. It is a quick reminder of how fragile our life and world truly are. We are fortunate to live in a country that has building codes that help structures withstand the forces of an earthquake and flood walls that can help withstand the surge of tsunami like waves. I am very sad for the families that have experienced such an incredible tragedy.
