    The further we walked into the town, the harsher and more devastating the destruction. All I could keep thinking was "how do you fix this? how do you recover?" I've seen small bits of destruction, but I've never seen an entire town utterly destroyed. Not one house we came across looked unharmed. Both sides of the main drag - a newly made damp, dirt path - had homes shifted off its foundation and/or collapsing beneath a weakened support column.
