Christmas is a very important holiday. Many people make Christmas plans weeks or months ahead of time, and they look forward to the day all year round. However, Christmas in 2004 wasn’t the happiest. Those watching the news on TV would have some big headlines that read: “Earthquake,” “Tsunami,” and “Hell on Earth.” The number of reported dead climbed by the thousands and is currently at over 150,000 and still rising. There had been huge front pages spread in newspapers that look like the aftermath of the apocalypse. Even though we are in Taiwan and far from the devastation, it is hard not to feel shocked and unsafe.
The Taiwanese media tends to play up the sentimental value of news stories, but this sort of maudlin display has already inundated people with a feeling of numbness toward what they watch. However, seeing the images of this disaster truly makes people contemplate the reality they live in. The world was shaken overnight, and it felt like people were all experiencing the less of someone close to them, and they have got together in mourning. Those sitting in front of TV all have an earnest desire to help in some way, and the international community has once again forged a feeling of unity, and has outpoured its love and convern for the victims of the tragedy.
The Pope has urged people to extend a helping hand, and many international organizations are already supplying aid. Taiwan has also responded immediately to the situation by sending out search parties, and plans to send medical supplies and organize charitable events are in the works.
