Boxing Day was the fifth anniversary of the Christmas Tsunami of 2004. With the fuss we're experiencing over increased airline security and difficulties caused by it for travelers, it's worth remembering that there are more serious things out there.

Update: I had the wrong date originally. It was Boxing Day 2004, not Dec. 29.
