Hello to you all,
I wasn't sure if this belonged in the political area of the forum, but it seems the closest for it. I was just thinking about the disaster in and around the Indian Ocean, and how much it makes my heart ache.
It’s hard to imagine the synchronized death of 190,000 people, and the fact that figure keeps rising is a disturbing one, to say the least. You can't imagine what that’s like, even after you've seen the images and interviews. Your home wrecked, family dead or missing in front of your eyes, no basic toilet or facilities, and no food. And those are the more fortunate ones.
I just feel this makes the war in Iraq completely shadowed, and perhaps even September the 11th, no matter how horrific both of those are. So I ask from you all, if you will be donating any money to the cause. I for one will be trying to donate as much as I can, which so far is around £50, but every little helps. I ask from you all to at least consider donation, putting that western money where it can be used best.
I also ask what the offspring’s/noodles opinion is on this, as I know he has good political views, and was wondering if he has, or is considering donating any amount.
Thank you for your time, I just hope you can all reply maturely.
