Tsunami's Toll Surpasses 55,000

Rescuers Battle to Reach Survivors as Diseases Become Major Concern

The death toll in 12 countries soared to at least 55,000, and thousands of bodies were decomposing on beaches and streets and wedged among shattered husks of trees. Survivors wandered in search of family members, hungry, at times drinking contaminated water, many not having received any help.

The World Health Organization in Geneva warned on Tuesday that tens of thousands of people could face death from cholera, typhoid and other diseases.

Too many have dispensed with generosity in order to practice charity.


Albert Camus (1913 - 1960)

Charity sees the need not the cause.


German Proverb

A bone to the dog is not charity. Charity is the bone shared with the dog, when you are just as hungry as the dog.


Jack London (1876 - 1916)

In charity there is no excess.


Sir Francis Bacon (1561 - 1626), Of Goodness, and Goodness of Nature (1625)

The charity that hastens to proclaim its good deeds, ceases to be charity, and is only pride and ostentation.


William Hutton
