A Moment of Silence photo & caption

FEMA and Red Cross personnel during a moment of silence

Off island delegates including the U.S Federal Emergency Management Agency and the American Red Cross officials, bow their heads during a “moment of silence” to remember the lives of the 34 local residents who died in the September 2009 tsunami. This was part of the opening yesterday of the last day of the Amerika Samoa 1st Annual Disaster Resilience Summit at Gov. H. Rex Lee Auditorium. And yesterday marked the 13th anniversary of the 2009 tsunami. [photo: Dora Luamanu]
