Waves from Hell

A year has passed since the big waves hit the shores; kill thousand of human & animals, ruin infrastructures and etc. In what way does Tsunami affect you? When I first heard about it, I have no idea how bad is it, that is until I saw it on TV, waves swamping in dragging along all things on its path, a sense of disbelieve crowded my head. The most heart wrenching of all is the video that was captured in Sri Lanka. It was at a bus station, as waves after waves of water rushing in filling up drains, water levels inching up in unbelievable speed and gathering speed, a group of commuter were seen clinging on to a pillar, which has suddenly turns into a lifeline.

An unexpected event has brought this group of strangers together. In a normal day, they probably sat beside each other, not talking to each other, everyone putting up a “shield”. On that day they share a common goal, all of them wants to get out of it alive. As they stole glances at each other, one of them starts to struggle, her grip loosens, slipping away, the wave carries and dragging her along its path of destruction.

On this 26th, this scene and others was shown again, for some they relive the pain of losing someone close. For those like us, we wonder is all this coverage of an anniversary of a sad event necessary. I do not want to relive the moments of seeing and hearing the footsteps of the nurses and doctors rushing around trying to resurrect my father…….

Well, actually there's something which made me realize, if you are not/haven't been in the shoe of the person, you will never know how it feels.
