Dressed in their best and clutching Bibles, thousands of Haitians gathered near a ruined cathedral Wednesday to mark the moment a year ago when the earth convulsed and savaged their nation. More than 220,000 people were killed and 1.3 million left homeless when at 4:53 pm (2153 GMT) on January 12, 2010 the Earth heaved for a few terrifying seconds, collapsing homes and businesses, churches and schools -- leaving hellish, nightmarish scenes of devastation and suffering.
