Beach community

We're all friends on this beach. We form a real community. Tonight, there are 50,000 oil lamps on Unwatauna beach and in this village.

I feel real sadness as my father saved the lives of nearly 100 people. I talked with him five minutes before disaster struck. At least I didn't see him die.

I remember that he was in a good mood that day.
