Summary of the story (put it into your own words) - 50 words
Start here: the main thing in the story is about earthquakes. Earthquakes sound like every country is getting hit by someone bigger than the world. Earthquakes make people die and they make a lot of people die like 1,000 people dead right now imagine that. Earthquakes make houses get destroyed and they destroy school and other places in countries. I wonder why earthquakes happen. I feel sorry for people's family that died.
