I've been to paradise, but I've never been to me.

Quake Deaths


The death toll from the 7.8-magnitude earthquake in southwest China’s Sichuan Province rose to 22069 nationwide as of 2:00 p.m. Friday, while 168669 people were injured.

Altogether 21577 people were killed in Sichuan, close to 2000 up from Thursday, and 159006 were injured.

In Sichuan’s neighboring regions, 364 were killed in Gansu, 109 in Shaanxi, 15 in Chongqing, 2 in Henan, one in Yunnan, and one in Hubei.

The earthquake destroyed or heavily damaged 436000 properties leading to 4.8 million homeless, according to official figures.

And the TV news said there were estimated to be totally more than 50000 deaths.

The rescue work is still keeping on. The death toll is still rising. We have no idea that how many people could survive.

"Saving lives is still our top priority, as long as hope of survival still exists," Premier Wen Jiabao said. He have tried everything he could to help his country and people. He has done his best.

Rescuers are still trying their best to find and save people. But hope is now running out of many trapped under tons of debris.

The earthquake and some other factors caused these deaths, even if many of them were kids. Let’s pray for those who died from this disaster. And hope the injured people would get recovered soon.

  6. I just can not stop sobbing each time I hear about news from disaster area–how many people died or injoured, homeless, helpless, especially many of whom are kids….
    Guys, just think it over: what if one of them is ur family or relative?
    Sometimes when I do sth. I will think about those in disaster.On one hand, I realize to value my life now. How lucky we are that we are still alive, healthy, we can breathe, enjoy happiness with family and friends, do everything we want…on the other hand, I feel so happy to see that people of the whole nation care and help those victims, just like a big family. Actually we are, aren\’t we?
    Hope we \’ll get over soon.
