China: Earthquake Diary

Zengying, a reporter from Chengdu, started his earthquake diary since May 12. Journalists were reporting with tears and he pleaded the government not to strengthen the control over media report. Today, he started his journey to the earthquake center, Wenchuan.

  • I hope China opens up over this

  • Dear Friends of China

    Many of you will know me or know of me and that I am here working in Luoyang, Henan PRC, also that I have considerable nursing experience (UK registered) particularly with abandoned and very sick children.

    My time is flexible at present and I am looking for an opportunity to help in Sichuan or anywhere that is receiving children or injured people from the earthquake area and need additional support of any kind.

    If you are working in that area or are sending or know of any western ngos in the area please would you let me know. I can speak some mandarin and am self funded.

    Many thanks for taking time to read this

    Best wishes

    Lyn

    Three days we mourn
    for the loss of lives
    They,
    left behind
    now lost in life,
    will mourn
    for days to come
    Three minutes
    we are silent
    for a lifelong silence
    They will hear
    Shaken in a world
    That shattered their hearts
    scattered their dreams
    Turned upside down
    Left their life
    In a shambles
    Today the world
    Cry with them
    But will their tears
    ever dry?
    Three days we remember
    They
    Their life long
    Will never forget….

    I want to share this … my heart goes out to my Chinese
    people
