Finally, a major region of the World suffered yet another devastating earthquake last month. The videos were stunning. People with cell phone cameras stood filming in city squares while massive stone towers toppled and crumbled. Pedestrians fell to their feet. It looked almost fake—like really poor special effects in a summer disaster movie. And yet the shaking and the damage and the loss of life were very real.
I could not have said it better myself! We can improve these structures. We must work together to do so.
