Massive Earthquake in Haiti! Most Powerful in 200 Years!

Thursday, January 14, 2010

Hi Geeks! Just a break from our usual geek stuff, let’s take a look at the 7.0 magnitude earthquake that hit Port-Au-Prince, the capital of Haiti. In 200 years, this is said to be the strongest, destroying a lot of the country’s establishments, homes and lives. People, regardless of their age, societal rank and the digits on their bank accounts, became one when they faced this tragedy. They became equals in the battle field.

In the movie Avatar, the Navis referred to mother nature as Eywa, where everything is connected and has a purpose. In reality, everything does have a purpose in each other’s lives. As one country is in pain, other countries and communities extend their help until Haiti can stand independently again.

It lifts me up when I see people helping each other. Let’s keep on spreading the love even after Christmas.
