I have gone back to this photo in amazement for days. I have to post it here. It just boggles my mind. The force of nature and how susceptible we all are to its strength. If a quiver in the earth's bowels can bend a rail track so easily in one place, and then leave the rest of it as if nothing happened - well, I just don't know what to say.
It just looks like a heart beat on an EKG. In a heart beat so much can change. I think of the people who were along this quake and how violent it must have been. I pray for the people who are putting their lives back together. It make me think about life and how quickly it can change for any one of us.
