After the earthquake, many people died and are affected by this serious disaster. Meanwhile there are many touching facts move us everyday. A three year old girl called Song Xin Yi. Her parents protected her in the earthquake. But her parents died, and this little girl could survive. This is the strong love from the parents. In the remains, people found a blank paper. But if you read it carefully, you could see the imprints. It was written by a stick from a high school student who died in this earthquake. His last words are: Dad and Mom, I am sorry. I hope you will stay well. When the rescue team searched for the survive people. They found a little baby slept well under her mom. Her mom already died. Her pose was quite weird, that's because she tried to protect her little baby. And she even breastfed her baby at her last moment. She left a message in her cellphone: My dear baby, if you are still alive, remember I love you. When a school collapsed, a very young teacher Yuan Wen Ting continuously carried one and one pupils out of the building. When she went there last time, the building was completely collapsed. Another teacher called Tan Qian Qiu. He used his back to carry a heavy big stone. And under him, there were four pupils. Because of his sacrifice, these four pupils survived. ... Let's mourn for those people. We are a great and united nation. Let's keep hand in hand and go through this difficult time. Do what we can do. Rebuild our beautiful home again. I love China

Who won't be afraid of the earthquake? But they still preferred to sacrifice themselves for others. They are the real heroes.

Hello, youless, you're great, you helped one to donate? Yesterday i saw China Daily, it has put the donation hotline, bank account and website on the paper, but i somehow forgot to take it with me today. Maybe we can post these on our discussion too. Maybe some foreigners would like to donate but don't know how. To avoid internet fraud, we can only post website for there, isn't it a good idea?

Since it seems there is no Paypal account for the Chinese Red Cross. And the transfer charge seems high. And therefore finally he transferred money to my Paypal account. And I transferred money to Chinese Red Cross here. Therefore, he didn't have to pay for transfer charge.

Hi youless! I can't stop crying while reading your post. This is really touching my heart and heart breaking at the same time. I admire the bravery, love and dedication those people showed in order for them to save others. Risking one's life for another is the greatest love of all. My prayers for you all! Take Care and God Bless!

You have a kind heart. Unfortunately English isn't my first language, and therefore I am unable to tell more and more facts in details. No matter how serious the earthquake is, it will never shake our determination. No matter how heavy the rain is, it will never destroy our love. I pass this love to you. Let's build the Great Wall of Love. Blessing Sichuan people...

They will be talking about the earthquake for a while; the clean up is going on right now and that will take a while. They still might find survivers and that would be great. There will be more of those sad moments from this event that will always be remembered by the whole world.

Those are some remarkable tales of heroism. You should be very proud of your country. Its hard to imagine what these people were going through the last few minutes of their life but instead of worrying about their pain they were trying to help others.

The children are always innocent and that's quite sad that they left so early... They even couldn't enjoy the life for a longer time...
