Ninety seconds – that's how long it took on the morning of Feb. 27, 2010 to leave Chile forever changed, as a deadly, 8.8-magnitude earthquake tore through the country, reducing several cities to rubble. The earthquake and subsequent tsunamis shattered Chile's buildings, historic architecture and roads, but it didn't break the vibrant Chilean spirit. Life and the country will go on, as Chileans will honor the more than 800 of their countrymen who lost their lives by rebuilding their beloved nation into the economic power it was before that fateful day.
