How to use tsunami in a sentence?

  1. The United:

    We are in the middle of a catastrophe that is not the result of a hurricane, that is not the result of a tsunami, it's the product of the inefficiency, the incapability, the corruption of a regime that doesn't care about the lives of Venezuelans.

  2. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    Some people believe that Silence is golden, and that Silence speaks a million words. In my view, it's not true. Silence often represents the remnants of your fears, flaws and insecurities. Silence signifies your inability and impotency to respond to reality. The saddest sounds of silence were heard loud and clear in the deepest darkness that followed Nazi Genocides, 9/11, Tsunami and Katrina. Silence isn't golden at all, and it surely comes back to haunt you. Stay away from Silence, and always dare to speak up your mind, so that life becomes smooth and seamlessly free-flowing. La Vie Continue!

  5. Michael Li:
