Bam - Some Hope in the Horror

It has been more than a week since the horrific earthquake in Bam, Iran, which has killed more than 30,000 people. Numbers can be very clinical and unless we sit down and think about it, we can miss out that the number - 30,000, which is an awful large number.
However, there was some hope among the horror stories. Just read that an elderly woman in her 90s was dug out from among the ruins. Called the “miracle of Bam” Shahrbanou Mazandarani was rescued after 8 long freezing days without any food or water. She said “God kept me alive”.
