10 Year Anniversary of the Asia Tsunami

Martina Reflects

December 26, 2014

10 years ago today, on December 26th, 2004, we were celebrating the 2nd Day of Christmas, when a massive tsunami hit South Asia, and the first images of the devastation and despair started flooding TV screens. The number of fatalities kept climbing until it was hard to imagine, hard putting into perspective what this meant. I remember when the death toll hit 80,000, and I thought: we had 1,000 students in my high school, now this is 80 times my high school. Read more here, in Martina’s story.
