I do find it interesting that tourists are sitting on that beach today. I suppose they had trips booked that they were unable to cancel? I can't imagine - even with the beauty of the ocean in Phuket - actually enjoying a vacation there at this time in history. Not to be too judgemental, but I couldn't imagine sitting on the beach sunning myself with so much tragedy around me.I could be wrong about every resort but an announcement was made by the government that all reservations could be cancelled without penalty. They don't want to lose this precious source of income in the future.Sounds silly, but even a few months after the towers fell, I couldn't bring myself to do something as simple as go to the mall and shop for Christmas.Yes, this makes loads of sense to me. When I was in the mall with my family, I couldn't go in stores. I waited outside in the main area while my daughter got what she needed and I stood and watched people walking around...it was incomprehensible to me that we were in the same country with the people who had suffered.The faculty is having a rough week but most of the kids are fine. On the first day I saw a teacher come in with tears and when I saw her at the end of the day, she was still teary eyed.I felt so badly for her. RBS
