Dedicated to all 2004 December 26th Boxing Day Tsunami Victims, families,those injured, and those otherwise affected. The terrible devastation and the aftermath of this catastrophe caught on tape. The 2004 Boxing Day tsunami was triggered by an earthquake off the north-west coast of the Indonesian island of Sumatra. It killed 230000 people in a dozen Indian Ocean countries, 170000 of them in Indonesia’s Aceh province alone. Sri Lanka and Thailand were severely impacted by the tsunami on December 26, 2004. Tsunami Thailand 2004 Indian Ocean earthquake was an undersea earthquake that occurred at 00:58:53 UTC (07:58:53 local time) December 26, 2004, with an epicentre off the west coast of Sumatra, Indonesia. Surprisingly, some islands right in the middle of the tsunami were not badly affected. It turns out their atolls, or coral reefs, absorbed much of the wave. The coral ridges protected them. In many regions of the Asian waters, there is a practice some fishermen use, of dynamiting the natural coral reefs to bring up fish. These barriers to the tsunami were no longer in place to deflect the water. The disaster promoted a global outpouring of sympathy, with governments, individuals and corporations pledging more than $13 billion in aid. According to UN database, nearly two years after donors pledged billions to help the victims only half the money had been spent. Of the half a million people left homeless by the disaster, only a third have been permanently rehoused. The

TarikProductions says:

I don’t understand why everyone focused so much on Thailand while a lot more people died in other countries, like Indonesia..

TheLazahYoda says:

I’d say lack of knowledge as well as being “captured by the view”, I can imagine the initial wave being a very powerful and beautiful view before it hit land.

saxmanchiro says:

If you have told one lie, you are a liar. If you have stolen even one thing, you are a thief. If you have looked upon a person to lust for them, JESUS says plainly; you have committed adultery in your heart! Using GOD’S name in vain once, makes you a blasphemer! Revelation 21v8 says “All liars will have their part in the lake of fire” No thief, adulterer or blasphemer will inherit the kingdom of GOD! You broke GOD’s law but JESUS paid your fine! (IF) you repent and trust CHRIST U will b saved

Sorry to tell you the sad truth, but there is no such thing as either.

PhillipTerry103 says:

Wow. My cousin was in this tsunami when he was still at the orphanage. His story is sad. His mom was a prostitute and she couldnt take care of of him so she gave him to her grandparents who gave him to there neighbors who abandoned him. The people found him and they sold him as a slave. Then the authorities found him and put him in an orphanage. Then my aunt adopted him like 6 – 8 months ago. Sad

Lots of energy let go underground from those tectonic plates. Same thing over in Japan last yr and it will be happening again and again since this area is the Pacific Ring of Fire. Every high schooler learns about this phenomenon in Earth Science. Sad to see so many lose their lives and homes. Hope they can find somewhere else to live so that they can be safe.

I’ve always found that Natives American beliefs are extremely pure and true. I love Native American culture. I really find it interesting. Thank you for your insight.

whitefawn01 says:

We believe there are energy in all things that are living from trees, animals and rocks. We believe in one Creator or Great Spirit. There are other spirits that assist him(angels) along with spirit guides. We give them animal figures to recognize them such as animal spirits, depending on there strengths. There are good and evil spirits. Bad energy can create evil energy spirit or poltergeists, this is were we use sweet grass or sage to purify, evil doesn’t like anything pure.
