It has been one year since a 7.0 magnitude earthquake decimated Haiti on January 12, 2010. In the weeks after the original tremors, many if not all of us read, watched, and listened to reports of the aftershocks—seismic and social—that turned Haiti into one of the worst disasters on record. On the anniversary of that tragic event, the SM team invited new contributors Heather Horst, Erin Taylor, Chelsey Kivland, and Laura Wagner to reflect on their time in Haiti and reactions to the earthquake. The responses ranged from the first-hand accounts to meditations on structural challenges. Over the course of the day, we will be posting these contributions.
