Social media is delivering messages of resilience in the wake of yet another natural disaster.
A 7.1 magnitude earthquake has killed more than 200 in Mexico, the second quake it has faced in two weeks. Yet those helping with the relief effort appear united, even defiant, in images shared via online channels.
The Sept. 19 earthquake came on the 32nd anniversary of Mexico’s 1985 earthquake, which killed 10,000 people.
The first earthquake, just 12 days prior, registered an 8.1 on the Richter scale. Yet Mexicans appear undeterred by the string of misfortunes and have taken to social media to share images and video of their resolve to rebuild and carry on.
