The earthquake has been weighing on my mind today because I have friends in that area and I thought that I would write an article about it because doing something productive helps me work through things in my mind sometimes. (whew - that's a good example of a run-on sentence Emotion: thinking)

I wrote this article in a brief, concise manner so that English students could learn and discuss what is going on without having to go through the inundation of news that is out there. I also included a list of words and definitions to help them understand the article.

The article is here .

Well, I won't say that I hope you enjoy it, just that I hope it helps some learners of English make a bit of sense out of the madness.
