Hope and struggle intertwine in recovery
As dawn broke on December 26, 2004, it appeared that Sunday would be no different than other weekend days across Asia. That changed when the most powerful earthquake in more than 40 years struck under the Indian Ocean. The ensuing massive tsunamis wiped out cities and killed tens of thousands of people in a dozen countries.
