I was driving to the office when the earthquake struck. Roads and buildings were shaking like curtains. Today, five months after the earthquake, I am more hopeful than in the days when we didn’t know how long it would take us to recover. We were plunged into a very severe situation, but this is the very reason why I can be thankful for what I have now and be happy. The earthquake posed an extremely large obstacle but also provided an opportunity to unite us to overcome this predicament.
