    Just five years after statehood, Alaska endured the largest earthquake recorded in North America before or since. The quake devastated communities around the Southcentral portion of the state, but in the years that followed it also made Alaska the epicenter of extreme seismic studies.

    Throughout Alaska on Thursday, residents in communities large and small will be taking to the streets to stand up for peace and human rights, during the now-annual “Choose Respect” march and rally. Here in Kodiak, according to Kodiak Womens Resource and Crisis Center outreach coordinator Sandra Wilkins, participants will gather at noon in the high school parking lot for a march down the hill to the Sun’aq Center on the Mall.
    “We’re doing this ... It’s a march for respect. Really, it’s a pledge for respect. It’s a statewide event – it’s a part of the governor’s initiative to end domestic violence, sexual violence and child abuse in our communities," Wilkins said. "It’s a march to help the community – to give them the opportunity to come out together and stand up against interpersonal violence and to help promote a safer and happier Kodiak. We’re just trying to go out there to choose respect for our community.”
    Each year a different government official attends marches around the state. This year, Bill Streur, the commissioner of the Alaska Department of Health and Social Services will join Kodiak marchers and give a few words at the Sun’aq Center. Borough Mayor Jerrol Friend and City Mayor Pat Branson are also expected to speak.
    Wilkins points out: that the marchers this year have a lot to live up to.

    “Last year we had the biggest one in all of Alaska, because all of the students from the middle school and some of the students from the high school participated, so it was a really big event last year," she said. "So we’re hopping that we can get more community participation again this year.”
    The march begins at 12:15 at the Kodiak High School parking lot, go down Rezanof and wind up at the Sun’aq Center, where lunch and refreshments will be served.

    Today during the 50th anniversary week of the Great Alaskan Earthquake and Tsunami, we continue our Waves of Destruction series, brought to you by a partnership with the Kodiak College.
    In the 1990s, students in Gary Stevens' Alaska History classes at Kodiak College recorded the stories of more than 120 Kodiak residents. The Waves of Destruction series draws excerpts from the recordings to tell the story of the 1964 earthquake and tsunami in the voices of those who experienced them.
    Today we’ll hear from Bud Cassidy:
    Kodiak Island Borough Manager Bud Cassidy had just celebrated his 10th birthday after moving with his family to Kodiak days before the earthquake and tsunami turned the town upside down. The experience triggered a lifelong quest to understand the geological underpinnings of Kodiak Island and a career in public service to shape policy that protects and prepares coastal dwellers for the next big event.

    Today we’ll hear from Art Zimmer.
    Kodiak builder Art Zimmer was in the midst of loading lumber onto his flatbed when the earthquake struck. He was relatively new to town and did not know that tsunamis often follow large earthquakes in coastal Alaska.
