From the Publisher's Desk: Mourning tsunami victim

I was moved, as I’m sure you were, by the story in Saturday’s Triplicate about Dustin Weber’s father and his decision to trek from Astoria, Ore., to the mouth of the Klamath River. By walking and riding his bike along the same coastline his son’s body traveled he’ll be honoring Dustin, who lost his life here as a result of last year’s tsunami.

We were all very lucky that Friday morning last March — all except Dustin. If it had been a high tide when the surges hit our coast we may have seen more casualties and certainly more damage. But with the tsunami of 3/11/11, fortunately, just one life was lost.

Just one. For Jon Weber that is no consolation, I’m sure.
