How many?



12-year-old Caroline Hewitt wrote a poem about the Boxing Day tsunami.

It accompanies the photograph (right), showing the flag opposite Lickey Church at half mast during the three minutes’ silence on January 5.

How many dead?
How many missing?
How many in despair?
How many with no food?
How many with dirty water?
How many children orphaned? 
How many loved ones lost?
How many loved ones missing?
How many living in hope that their
loved ones will be found?
How many?
