Hi👋🏼! I’m Giorgia and today is my last day in this instagram page, for this way I want to share something meaningful.
I don’t begin any project for my program or anything socially useful yet, I can will it later.
So I’m going to talk about a situation which got my attention and to grew more my sensitive.
The 26th December 2004 Banda Aceh was hit by one of the most catastrophic tsunami ever. This city now host more sites open to visitors about this tragedy event and I visited some, unfortunately I have just few pictures, but I will try writing to explain what I mean when I say “to grew more my sensitive”
When happened disasters like that, everyone make noise on social networks, thousand of shares of the same post, but who thinks really? Who worry or is saddened thinking what happened to hundreds kilometres from us? All of us don’t use to give weight to what is away from us.
In tsunami museum there is a wall full of the victims names, fourteen years later I saw people still cry looking back on this.
This is not an article published in the newspaper, a shared post, or something that has been talked about on TV, we are talking about human lives, of children torn from their parents, of homes razed to the ground. We are talking about real life, real people, real pain, people who felt terror, others lost everything, maybe someone wanted to die with his loved ones. It’s all true. I met people who were there when the tsunami arrived, people who cried while told me these moments, people with eyes full of suffering. We have to raise our awareness. It’s necessary. I’m onored to knew people with a so big story inside. I want just say thank to them. I hope I managed to get the concept and my emotion.
