Pictures Tell the Story in Myanmar, Life After the Cyclone


Pictures are starting to come out of Myanmar following the cyclone though media is discouraged. One CNN reporter remaining anonymous says, "They have no drinking water whatsoever. When you don't have drinking water and you are forced to drink out of puddles and drinking reservoirs contaminated by dead bodies... It is a very dire situation."

Aid has started to trickle in though UN Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon has spoken harshly to the junta. He says it's time to "put its people's lives first. This is not about politics. It is about saving people's lives. There is absolutely no more time to lose."

If you're inspired by the pictures, here are tons of ways to help.

Really breaks my heart. So many people are going to die needlessly.

I can't even fathom this. I can't wrap my brain around it. It's too horrible and it's too vast. I pray for those poor people.

what a miserable situation. i hope the junta will back down some and accept some of the aid that is coming to them, no matter who it's coming from.
