A friend of mine, just sent me some wmv's showing the tsunami that hit asia recently. There is one from Phuket, one from Patong and one from Sri Lanka.
I had not seen any of the footage on the news, because I didn't want to be depressed. I find that watching these wmv's was almost like watching those planes fly into the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center back in 2001. Only this time, there was no human mastermind behind it. Just a primal force of nature. Strange and powerful and something that really reminds me that just because humans are the dominant species here on Earth, it doesn't mean that there aren't more powerful sources out there.
This was our wake up call.
