After the Tsunami

Below is my comment on the "Time" article of "After the Tsunami Page 16  Time, April 4, 2005".

Your special report on the people in Asia after the Tsunami tells us how important the media continues to attract world attention to the people and their lives devastated by natural disasters because so many red tape and corruption exist in the process of spending the aid to them.
We are apt to forget the past happenings even though they were tragic and massive. Especially when something enormous happened in your neighbors. Honestly, I almost forgot the Tsunami in Asia because I was terrified by the big earthquake registered 7.0 on the Richter scale in my home town Fukuoka on March 20 with more than 700 people injured and 1000 houses damaged.
