I'm very impressed at the news about a ten years old English girl saving one hundred people on the beach in Phuket. She's a little girl but just happened to remember her recent geography lesson about the Tsunami. Apparently when this girl saw the sea water receding to the ocean, the adults were curios and excited but she was freaked out. She told her mum "Mummy, we must get off the beach now!" "I think there's going to be a tsunami." Aparently her parents didnt quite understand the word"tsunami" so she said "The tidal wave!" Then her parents alerted the other tourists on the beach to get off just in time. Her teacher must be proud of her.

You never know what you know could save your life one day.
