Hundreds of houses collapsed, educational facilities, health and roads badly damaged. many places are still isolated from help.I can't say anything.....just pray and pray.
Why An earthquake didn't stop shocking my country
As religious person I believe that every disaster that happens in this world is the will of god. Many of aims want god to say through this disaster. The quake intended to test and know the level of spirituality and patience of people. We are should be more patient and continued closer to god. This is also valid for people who are not affected by the disaster should concerned and willing to help their brother who was in difficulties.
