MackZul dedicated a blog entry to those who have lost and pray that those who live on, are living better lives and even though Chan Lilian can still feel the pain, she decided to put up her recycled post of her experiences in Penang during the tsunami. Lucia Lai, also from Penang, recalled the event and felt glad that she was part of the NGOs who attended to the victims, while another blogger prayed in silence to the dead and the living.
Then again, as we reflect a year on, alvinyv is able to sense that many of us wish we might not have done all we can do to help the survivors of that tragedy. True enough to say that, it's never too late to give and to help. But, as much of the donations weren't distributed properly, with very little going to the victims, trust and faith towards charity organizations shifted. Sad but true enough.
Jamloceng proposed using a “chained computer” or grid computer as the main factor in getting Linux to work as and early warning system. The blogger believes that through the creation of an open source system, affected countries will look at this code more seriously because this involves their life, and sharing of information between countries is important in order to create a more accurate system.
Lets pray that something like this will never happen again and hope those who are affected by this disaster are able to find peace. Miss Muffin had written a poem for the souls who left us, who was taken away by the killer waves and who reminded how lucky one is.
You may have left us, but you will be remembered
You may have been abandoned, but you will still be deeply loved.
Your soul will be prayed for, your courage will be honoured.
You cry to no one, yet your loved ones cry out to you.
You gave up your precious life, so that someone else could lived
You braved your only life, so that someone else could be saved
Your soul will be remembered, your name will be spoken of.
You bow to no one, not even the killer waves of nature
Your endurance is our admiration , Your sacrifice touches our hearts
Your bravery belittles the waves, Your strength lets the living lives.
Gone you may be, but forgotten you are not.
Ah, there is still hope!
