    Thanks to Japanese rescue team.
    When I saw the news that Japanese rescue team helped to find dead persons day and night in Si Chuan, I was moved by their professional and humanism. They did great work in China. Though living in Beijing, I should also show my honor to every team member.
    If you could, please help to forward my thanks to other Japanese people, we will never forget the people who helped us.
