Plate tectonic movement underneath Taiwan occur frequently. A major earthquake strikes every 30 to 40 years. Buildings collapse and homes shatter within a matter of seconds. Lives are destroyed and the earth is wounded. Ffter the earthquake, we walked slowly down the street. Slanted bulidings and toppled brick houses. It seemed like the end of the world. Within the rubble, people walk around digging and picking. They search for undamaged furntiure and unbroken tiles. The rigor of life is starting to return. Reconstruction has begun. People are undefeated.
