The Lushan region is not only home to people, but also to the Yan’an Panda Reserve, where these two pandas adopted by Huang Xiaoming live. May the people of Yan’an be like the name of these pandas – Ping Ping An An (safe and sound)

At 8:02 a.m. local time on Saturday, a 7.0-magnitude earthquake hit the Lushan region of Sichuan, followed by hundreds of aftershocks that went upwards of magnitude of 5.1. As of the writing of this post, there have been over hundreds injured and at least 56 dead.

Let us stand in solidarity of the lives lost and families and friends suffering  everywhere, be it due to natural disasters or other terrible events, in this very depressing week.

Five years ago, this song was sung by a group of Sichuan singers (and written by one) for their home. Sichuan has recovered to be its beautiful self again since then, and may it stand strong again.

    The tone of a lot of the English news article is “the government didn’t prepare enough” or “the government isn’t doing enough”. Granted the quotes are from the victims, but if something like this happened in the US or Europe there will be stories about neighbors helping each other or how the hardworking the relief workers are…

    • I saw that picture and it was nice of her to report in her wedding dress. I hope everyone’s safe and the death toll doesn’t rise too high. Hopefully more help is on the way.
