On May 12, 2008, there was an earthquake happened in Wenchuan, Sichuan province. More than 69000 people had lost their lives, 374643 people had injured and 17923 people could not be found in this earthquake. After the earthquake had happened, people from all the field joined the rescue teams. At that moment, people only care about one thing, that was to save more people from this disaster and encourage the injure to be strong. After seven day, the chairman declared that May 19 is the national day of mourning. Flags were at half-mast everywhere on the day of mourning for victims of Wenchuan earthquake.

The mourning day is to remember the people who lost their lives in the earthquake, on one hand, is to remind people do not forget that day, don’t forget about the past and look into the future; on the other hand, is to encourage the survivers to stay strong. Life is worth living for. 
Although Earthquake had destroyed our home, but we can build a brand-new one. We can rebuild our hope. Just as Nixon said so, our destiny offers not the cup of despair, but the chalice of opportunity. So let us seize it, not in fear, but in gladness. Just have a little faith. Just try to remember that everything will be alright. We will find what we are looking for in the future. 
Wish the perished victims rest in peace and the survivors live in sprits.
