…and I am not really surprised by this. While I share everyone’s concerns over the Yogyakarta plane crash, the story does seem to have masked that other Indonesian event the strong earthquake that shook the Indonesian island of Sumatra. At least 52 have died and 1,000 houses have been destroyed.
You may recall that last year in May an even more severe earthquake hit Yogyakarta itself.
All three events highlight the fact that the world is indeed perilous and life is indeed fragile, without adding in those manmade blights of war and terrorism.
