The olympic torch relay suspended,the logo of newspapers and websites in our coutry blacked....The wind is cring..... As the chairman Hu said,"I believe firmly that no difficulty can not be overcome in front of our great people." Pray for life. Pray for our great country. Pray for our great people....

I know many here in the US have watched everything unfold in your country with much saddness. I know I am not the only ones that had tears when we saw the distruction and the loss of lives in your country. I have and will continue to pray for all of you.

We're extremely sad that so many people lost their life and millions of homes were destroyed in the earthquake. I am sad to hear any news about the victims and happy to hear the news about the survivors. I believe it is time for our homeland to pass through all the disasters and come to its bright future! Our great country and great people is unconquerable!!!!!!
