Earth Quake didn't Stop

Updated on October 1, 2009

Indonesia was grieving again. After last month Earth Quake was shocking Java Island. And now September 30,2009 An earthquake measuring 7.6 on the Richter scale shook the region of West Sumatra. In the Padang City exactly. The earthquake destroyed hundred of homes, buildings and shopping centers. Million people was suffering now. Around two hundred hotel guest was trapped in Ambacang Hotel and can't be evacuated from the collapse building.Ambacang Hotel is a three star Hotel located in the middle of the town. With all damage making it difficult doing manual evacuation. The team is still waiting for evacuation equipment to help the victims. Seems many hotel guests was died.

There is a building where sixty student was trapped over there. And now the building was destroyed by the earth quake. According to the information all the student was die now. The rescue team try to dig and take out their bodies. As a teacher it makes me sad. I never stop crying. Although they are not my student but my heart said so. GOD.....please give their place in heaven.

I always up date the news about this disaster. And GOD.......the victims now almost 500 people was died. And this will continue to grow because many victims are still buried in collapsed buildings. Hundreds of houses collapsed, educational facilities, health and roads badly damaged. many places are still isolated from help.I can't say anything.....just pray and pray.


Why An earthquake didn't stop shocking my country

As religious person I believe that every disaster that happens in this world is the will of god. Many of aims want god to say through this disaster. The quake intended to test and know the level of spirituality and patience of people. We are should be more patient and continued closer to god. This is also valid for people who are not affected by the disaster should concerned and willing to help their brother who was in difficulties.

      This West Sumatera's earthquake was bigger than the last one - Tasikmalaya earthquake. You know what, last month, I carried my daughter run out from my house, the shake was so big and I'm thankful to the Lord God that we're ok, my house still ok, but watched our brothers and sisters in Padang, I think it could happen to me.

      I'm terribly sorry to hear of all of the suffering. I thought we were supposed to have a all loving God. I'm sorry to kill that many people and make so many more suffer is a vile act by God or any other entity.
