The iconic image of Hanabeth Luke assisting Tom Singer through the flames of the Sari Club in Bali.

This is a show well worth the watch.

When disaster strikes, what determines who lives and who dies? Does luck, chance, Karma or God decide our fate? And, do those who survive owe any debt for their lives?

Compass explores how survivors of two very different disasters have made sense of what happened to them.

Hanabeth Luke was 22 when she survived the Bali Bombing, but the love of her life - who was just metres away from her on the dance floor of the Sari Club – did not. Josh & Gabby Magnus and their sons, Eli and Zac, were in Thailand on Boxing Day 2004 when the tsunami hit their holiday resort. They survived, but more than 230,000 in the region did not. How has their survival impacted on their lives? And, have their religious beliefs played a role in their extraordinary experiences?

  1. A good question I've often thought about myself. I titled a post "Who lives? Who Dies? Who Or What decides?" on October 19th.

  2. This looks interesting, will have to check it out. Thanks!

    Is everything okay over in Oz? Here in the UK they were reporting live from the scene of the huge bush fires and told us all sorts of potential horror that might occur over there. Then, just like that, they dropped the story. What happened. The media here didn't tell us much after Wednesday.

    Over here now we are being 'warned' of a potential hurricane force storm for Monday. All the focus is on the wind! That and of course the paedophiles, as per usual!
