President Hu Jintao urged "all-out" efforts to rescue victims of the quake,
which hit 92km (57 miles) from Chengdu, Sichuan's provincial capital.

Very tragic indeed!

Just wondering... I don't know how many of you can remember the following earthquakes that occured in:-

1. Mexico ~ just before the 1986 FIFA World Cup

2. Japan ~ just before the 2002 FIFA World Cup

and now...

3. China ~ just before the Beijing 2008 Olympics

Strange isn't it?

As per BBC the death toll has reached between 3000 - 5000 in just one province. Fearing toll may rise as more news are coming from China.

with all war and natural disaster we should remain humble, grateful to GOD for all we have and stay positive in life that everything is not forever. GOD can take it anything anytime. So please love your husband/wife, daughter/son, family/friends, neighbor/people on the street more. We never knows when our last time in this world.

Everybody is right everybody is wrong it depends where you stand.

No guarantee, No warrantee for life . Sad but true.

In the end, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends.
