My heart breaks at the sheer numbers of people dead, injured, and homeless. May the Lord watch over them and help them to rebuild their lives once again. People today are somewhat immune to actual disaster until it becomes a true reality, as this did. Only then, do they remember what it is like to be human to each other and kind, helping each other, no matter one's origin. May the lessons of heroism and kindness flowing through humanity endure long past this experience.
As for the rest of the world, I am also here seven years and love China and her people dearly. I see a brave, enduring, evolving people. Her leadership is caring overall and responsible. The Premier is a wonderful, warm-hearted man. People should come here and learn about this great country and her people, instead of finding fault with everything. Praise the bravery of the victims and their families. Give hope, not pain, to the Chinese people. People need love at times like this, not criticism.
I am a German and have been a member of the German-Chinese Friendship association since the late Seventies. I have 2 sponsorships for chinese pupils in Shanghai and Shandong and naturally I donated to 2 funds in Germany who will support the victims in China (Oxfam and Caritas international) I know that the German Red Cross will be sending a coplete mobile hospital to Sichuan which can treat 30 patients in beds and tenhousends of other patients. Many newspapers give reports on the earthquake and publish adresses wwhere people can make a donation for china. So please believe me: you have many friends in Germany and I am sure expats in China will donate too or help in other ways. What counts is friendship between many people in Germany and China.
With my best regards from Fulda.

Our hearts are with the People of China in this time of sadness.
The people will be ever stronger than before and move forward.
The Chinese Government have also done a great job it helping the people.
China will and shall never fall despite all the tragedies and disasters - natural and/or man-made - are causing and affecting the nation's building and developing.
The Chinese have had gone through many difficulties and hardships over the past centuries and they never succumbed to these disasters and tragedies('bad luck' or fate)!
Move on, China! The Chinese nation and the Chinese people shall prevail!
A week of grief, and helplessness; a week of enormous courage, compassion, and help; a week of shining the spirit of human being brighter and brighter;
We all felt the pain and suffering of the Wenchuan earthquake victims. We all drenched in tears over the loss of so many brothers and sisters.
Be strong , and build Sichuan again.
Today at 2:28 in Shanghai. That was amazing. The whole city stopped moving for 3 minutes from my office I could see all cars stopped, all pedestrians stopped, people coming to the windows in their apartments. Super cool. I have never seen something like that before.
Absolutely amazing. Everyone showing support. Super powerful, it made me feel amazed by China.
Canada should do more to help aid the people in Si Chuan China. Send special teams to China who are specialist in emergency situations. Make a public address of support. Donate special equipment to the area. Donate more funds. More needs to be done.
