The destruction of a tsunami

When I watched coverage of the Indonesian tsunami on the day after Christmas in 2004, I figured I was watching a once-in-a-lifetime event. How wrong I was. Here we are, less than a decade later, and our televisions have once again been jam packed with the incredible and tragic images of Mother Nature's indifferent fury.

Of all the footage I have seen of this tsunami, this particular one has seemed to stick in my mind, as it truly gets the point across of what a tsunami looks like, and what it can do:


"If a nation expects to be ignorant and free... it expects what never was, and never will be." -Thomas Jefferson
