In Indonesia’s Darkest Hour
Jakarta is hit by one of the worst floods in recent memory, paralyzing it – fortunately, only for half a day with a minimum of lives lost.
Mentawai is hit by consecutive large earthquakes, then devastated by tsunamis. 113 lives lost.
Mount Merapi erupts, bringing hot clouds down its hillsides. 25 lives lost so far.
At this dark hour for Indonesia, isn’t it a good time to let go of the power plays, politics and differences, and become one as a nation?
