It is a terrible and horrific tragedy that has befallen China. Most may know that Chinese law only allows families to have one child. With that said. The earthquake that struck the central part of that country has razed an entire generation.
The example I found most disturbing, a family with a kindergarten age daughter had left for holiday. They left there daughter in the charge of her grandmother. When the earthquake hit the school that the girl was in simply fell directly into the basement class rooms where all the kindergarten kids were. This family will never see there child again nor there mother.
Put yourself in the position of these parents. I know that i hugged my two kids a lot this morning after that story aired.
I am unaware of any relief efforts by the U.S. other than possibly the Red Cross but if you find one please help out in any way you can.
BTW this is not intended to dismiss the equally unimaginable tragedy in Burma. Where not only have entire families have been lost, but entire villages are simply wiped out and we will probably never be able to account for all the dead.
