resurrection

Finally got round to sorting out two thick files’ worth of GP stuff as part of Operation Clean Room. Found this piece of foolscap with the following quote written on it. Can’t remember why I even copied it down – perhaps I found it evocative enough……

It has been three months since an underwater convulsion off the coast of Sumatra spawned a series of huge waves that washed up on the shores of the Indian Ocean. On official counts, nearly 300,000 people died in the tragedy or are still missing. For the survivors, the pain will never disappear. Now, however, after what surely must be the greatest outpouring of compassion the world has ever seen, a semblance of normality is setting in. Schools, food stalls – and yes, auto-parts shops – are reopening; mosques, temples and churches are welcoming the faithful to prayer; and children are again playing in streets that not long ago were grimly silent.
