Sri Lankans Map Out Lives after Tsunami

A look at how some Sri Lankans have been affected by the tsunami and how they are coping with the aftermath. Hundreds of children are expected to end up in orphanages. Thousands have lost everything; families, homes, possessions. But most Sri Lankans don't want to be perceived as only victims and want to take control of their own destinies. NPR's Jason Beaubien reports.
