South Asia Follow-up: Remember the children
The big quake that hit South Asia left thousands of mourning parents. According to an editorial in yesterday's Christian Science Monitor, half of the victims were children. Thousands of children who survived are homeless, including those pictured above.
Meanwhile, another survivor story comes out of Muzaffarabad, Pakistan. After four days, rescuers pulled a five year-old girl out of the rubble. This was a shot of good news as hopes faded on finding other earthquake survivors. The youngster whispered, "I want a drink." Details from The Associated Press.
