The Asia Quake
The HumanDHS network would like to extend their deepest sympathy to the victims of the tragedies across Southern Asia and Africa, caused by the Sunday earthquake and tsunamis.
This tragedy reminds us of our joint responsibilities for this One Planet that we inhabit together.
How come that the wealthy of the world use less wealthy countries as cheap holiday destinations, keeping these countries too poor to be able to afford sound warning systems... quite an expensive strategy in the long run...and unmeasurably tragic...
