Yesterday’s tsunami was one of the worst and the first in history which swept Sri Lankan shores killing thousands.
The destruction is staggering, unbelievable.
The worst part is we have never been prepared, never heard of this kind of disaster unless in movies. Lost so many lives in a sudden flush of water. We were a thousand miles away from tsunamis until now. You have absolutely no defense against huge raging sea wave at land, somthing that you have never heard of in your life, no sign, no alerm, no rain, no warning, nothing unusual, it’s the same serene sea you sit beside and enjoy for hours. Suddenly tossing and crushing its raging waves in a Day After Tomorrow like blockbuster movie which came out of nowhere. People didn’t realised they were hitting a wall of death.
So I leave this note in memory of all those lives we lost today. May you all attain ‘Nirvana’ and rest in peace.
The government has declared a state of emergency to aid the displaced and the dead but this is by no means a thing a country like Sri Lanka can cope with alone.
So please, you the international community do help us, send us whatever the aid you could grant to the Sri Lankan Government.
We are urgently in need of medicines, ready to eat food , sanitary items, body bags ect.
