One week on...

It's been a week now.

A week since the university year started, but was abruptly interrupted.
A week since many people's homes, livelihoods, and lives have once again been thrown into chaos, or in some cases, complete disrepair.
A week since the landscape of the city has forever changed, trapping many people just going about their daily lives; someone's mum/dad... brother/sister... child, forever unable to go home at the end of the day.

An extraordinary week since the earthquake struck.

One week on, let us take a moment of silence for reflection over the events of the past week...


  1. I feel sorry for what happen. Hope everything will be better soon..

  2. It's been one week since a terrible event happened, it's been one week: let us mourn the dead...
    But as the old saying goes: "The king is dead, long live the king!" there will be rebuilding, there are new friendships born out of disasters, families reunited and realising how lucky they are together, or how much each of them misses a person they took for granted.
    It is life in its horror and its beauty, it is good to sit down, but after a while you have to pick up the pieces and start going up again.
    The buildings will have to be rebuilt, new 3D models and presentations will be needed...
    Destruction makes room for creation, let us not miss the oportunity to rebuild better, stronger and live for the future, while remembering fondly our past,
    be it in pain or in joy, it makes us what we are.
