May God and our prayers be with the people of China affected by this tragic earthquake that has happened in the same providence of 2008 that killed 90,000 men women and children. This has affected many lives again so please stop and say a prayer for all of them

@long sheng hongEven if you are right,there is NO way for us to get accustomed it!We are just the victims of the crime committed by Mother Nature.There is mounting evidence reveals that Indian plate motion is responsible for this.As you can see,the earthquake happened days ago in Iran struck that area for the same reason.Honestly,I hope you can make it through if you lost your family to the 'going-to-get-accustomed' disaster.
