PostSubject: Sze Chuan (China) Earthquake   Thu May 22, 2008 11:43 am

Why nobody talks about this?

I almost shed tears when I watched the news thru' cable tv. Very saddening that so many lives were lost.Crying or Very sad

There was this guy who was trapped for 100+ hours. When the rescue team found him, he requested for a phone to call back his family to let them know he was fine and that he loves them. After which, when he was rescued out after 5hours, the first sentence he said was "我不行了"(I can't make it anymore) and he closed his eyes and.....

SOOOOOOOOO sad. You guys should see it. It was so.. argh! No

Oh man, I didnt see that.

But, I saw the one where the school collapsed and parents were crying and offering joss sticks to the school bags of their children. It's really very sad cos they only have 1 child due to the China' policy.

Honestly, this is so................. I really don't know what to comment but it's very sad that the situation came to this state.

No

Ya this is really saddening,
although i do not have any friend/relative that was there

One of my friend's classmate is studying in singapore alone
(She came from China, Sze Chuan)
Her family members are all there and there is no way she can contact her now
To worsen the situation, our school's test is coming next week,
i heard she had been crying in class.
Hopefully everything is fine Crying or Very sad

GOSH. You mean her family is in Sze Chuan and most likely they are all... dead?
Oh dear. I feel so sad now.

Yes, most likely they're all dead unless there is some miracle Sad
Not sure if the school allowed her to go back and check out
because she need 80% attendance else she'll fail her whole module
(Most likely yes, unless the school is so heartless!)

I missed so much news regarding this,
I only remember one whereby on that day os rescue, it was the girl's birthday
and the everyone there sang a birthday song for her

Below is something that kinda made me cry:
直到那一刻
你手中还握着一支圆珠笔
紧紧地
紧紧地
在那一刻
一声巨响
一片黑暗
世界突然停顿下来
你连笔也来不及松手
也许那是你唯一的圆珠笔
也许是你爸妈给的生日礼
爸妈常说,要努力向上
老师常说,要好好学习
在那一刻
也许你正从窗口望出去
课室外的天地
让你暇思
你记起爸妈今早的叮咛
你想起成都、上海、北京
这些既近又远的城市
什么时候你能去
刹那间
一切都消失
你没有恨意
直到那一刻
你手中还握着
爱与希望
紧紧地
紧紧地

---给四川绵竹市汉阳镇一位在震灾中受害的无名小女孩。不同照片显示,
死时还紧紧握住笔的小孩子不只一人

Heard that the kids are actually studying in a tent?
I salute them! Exclamation

I haven't been reading the papers nor listened to the news. But I read about the touching stories from a blogger. Kinda sad actually. They managed to save others but not their closed ones. Yet they still hang on and continue saving the rest.

I got an e-mail regarding this. The story is as follows:

抢救人员发现她的时候,她已经死了,是被垮塌下来的房子压死的,透过那一堆废墟
的的间隙可以看到她死亡的姿势,
When rescuers found her, she was already dead, crushed by the collapsed
house. Through gaps in the rubbles, they could see her posture.
双膝跪着,整个上身向前匍匐着,双手扶着地支撑着身体,有些象古人行跪拜礼,只
是身体被压的变形了,看上去有些诡异。
Kneeling on both knees, her entire upper body bent forward, held up by her two hands pressed against the ground, as if performing the ceremonial bow
in an ancient ritual. Except, her body had been compressed out of shape
and looked somewhat eerie.

救援人员从废墟的空隙伸手进去确认了她已经死亡,又在冲着废墟喊了几声,用撬棍
在在砖头上敲了几下,里面没有任何回应。
A rescuer extended his hand through a gap and confirmed her death. He
called out to her, and tapped on the bricks with his shaft, but received
no response.

当人群走到下一个建筑物的时候,救援队长忽然往回跑,边跑变喊'快过来'。他又来
到她的尸体前,费力的把手伸进女人的身子底下摸索,
As the team walked toward next building, the squad leader suddenly turned back, yelling as he ran, 'Come quick!' He came to her remain, labored to
maneuver his hand under her body, searching.

他摸了几下高声的喊'有人,有个孩子,还活着'。
He called out following some rummaging, 'There's someone, a child, still
alive.'


经过一番努力,人们小心的把挡着她的废墟清理开,在她的身体下面躺着她的孩
子,包在一个红色带黄花的小被子里,大概有3、4个月大, With some effort,
rescuers carefully removed the debris burying her, found her child lying
beneath her, bundled in a little red blanket decorated with yellow flower
prints. He was about 3-4 months old.

因为母亲身体庇护着,他毫发未伤,抱出来的时候,他还安静的睡着,他熟睡的脸让
所有在场的人感到很温暖。
Shielded by his mother's body , he was totally unharmed, sleeping
peacefully as he was brought out. His soundly asleep face warmed the
hearts of all rescuers on the scene.

  随行的医生过来解开被子准备做些检查,发现有一部手机塞在被子里,医生下意
识的看了下手机屏幕,发现屏幕上是一条已经写好的短信
As the rescue team's doctor unbundled the blanket to examine the baby, he
discovered a mobile phone tucked into the blanket. He subconsciously
looked at the display, found there was a SMS message.

'亲爱的宝贝,如果你能活着,一定要记住我爱你',看惯了生离死别的医生却在这一
刻落泪了,手机传递着,每个看到短信的人都落泪了。
'My Dear Baby, If you were to stay alive, you must remember that I love
you.' No stranger to the pain and sorrow brought by death, the doctor
nonetheless wept at this moment. The cell phone was passed around, every
person who read the message wept.

Touching hor? I almost cried in the office when I read about it.
