Earthquake in China

Just heard the horrible news during the weekends, a 7.0 earthquake hit Ya’an, Sichuan province in the morning on 22th of April based on Beijing time. This city is with 1.5 million population which is very close to Chengdu. So far, the earthquake in Ya’an has already claimed 186 persons’ lives and several thousands persons get injured. Rescue workers are on location and the entire nation is praying for the people of Ya’an.

I still remember that in 2008, a 7.8 earthquake also hit Sichuan province. This time, the people on that land have to undertake the suffering again. Heard one story that there is one mother, she lost her 23-year-old son in the earthquake 5 years ago. Unfortunately, her 17-year-old daughter got seriously injured this time. I even cannot imagine if this disaster happen to me, what can I do. These suffering persons have to choose stay strong.

Now on different kinds of social media platforms in China, everywhere you can see something regarding the earthquake. The people who is standing the suffering sent SMS via mobile or other devices, saying I’m still safe or I need rescue, my location is…… Other people will sent information out, like if you know whose information, please reply to me. The social media platform is really helpful and supportive at this special period.

Let’s pray for the safety of those persons who are in the disaster area. I hope all of the people who experienced disaster are fine. No one can stop or prevent these kind of things from happening. If it really happened, we have to stay strong to face it.
