Formed from the characters for harbour and wave, and commemorated in the 19th-century 自由のための二重幸福のカジノのゲーム print by Hokusai that decorates so many books and articles about the subject, the word shows that these sudden, devastating waves have mainly in the past occurred in the Pacific Ocean, ringed as it is by volcanoes and earthquake zones. In terms of cold statistics, that is wrong, 自由のための二重幸福のカジノのゲーム as the estimated death toll climbs well past 50,000. Other earthquakes have killed more, especially in poor and populous countries such as China: probably 600,000 or more in Tangshan in 1976, and 200,000 or so on two occasions in the 1920s. Iran lost an estimated 50,000 people to a quake in 1990 and a further 26,000 in Bam exactly a year ago to the day, on December 26th 2003. It is not even the Indian Ocean's deadliest disaster, for cyclones have often brought worse, most notoriously in 自由のための二重幸福のカジノのゲーム when the then new state of Bangladesh lost about read article people. For in that very geographical challenge lies also an opportunity, one that comes in three main forms. The first is that the involvement in the disaster of so many resorts favoured by tourists from rich countries in the West and the richer parts of north-east Asia has given it even more prominence in those countries than the sheer horror of the fatalities would have produced. Such selfish distortions are regrettable in theory -- who noticed while millions were dying in Congo's wars? It ought to be possible to raise far more in charitable donations from individuals 自由のための二重幸福のカジノのゲーム organisations in rich countries for relieving this disaster than for single-country earthquakes or floods, for example.

My fellow citizens of the world: ask not what America will do for you, but what together we can do for the freedom of man. I do not shrink from this responsibility--I welcome it. Laura and I are honored to be here.
