TSUNAMI one year on : The day we shall not forget

Thousands of survivors and relatives of last year's tsunami held memorial services Monday morning at seven locations in Thailand where the earthquake-generated waves killed more than 5,300 people one year ago today.

Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra said he hoped all the victims "will be happy in their next life" before one of the bigger ceremonies on the resort island of Phuket Monday morning.

Seven government-organized services along the Andaman coast are scheduled for the anniversary, as well as numerous other smaller private gatherings were being held.

Thais were joined by survivors returning from Sweden, Britain, Australia, Germany and France and other countries to mark the anniversary.

The tsunami killed at least 5,395 people in Thailand, many of them foreigners on holiday at beach resorts, when it struck on the morning of December 26, last year.

Re: TSUNAMI one year on : The day we shall not forget

oh... Ülmo was angry.

If it's god's way, then it isn't natural. "The way god controls population"

other ways: creating bush, hitler, etc.

Last year I got here a week after the tsunami. This year I stayed away from the beach on Dec. 26th., thinking that it should be left to the survivors and families of the victims.
Actually not many people realise that on Phuket relatively few people died and most of those were in a new shopping center beside Patong beach, which unfortunately has a basement. On the three beaches south of Patong (Karon, Kata and Kata Noi) there was not a single fatality.
The TV news media do not mention that, because everyone around the world can relate to the tragedy in Phuket. But how many can relate to the tragedy in Kao Lak? Thousands died at Kao Lak, which is only a short drive north of Phuket island, but it was all family resorts, not the glamour resort of Phuket, and so not as newsworthy.
