China, too, has had an enormous tragedy in the last week. Exactly one week ago, in fact, the Sichuan Earthquake of 2008 (aka the Wenchuan earthquake) registered at 8.0 on the richter scale. Tens of thousands, and very likely hundreds of thousands, will have lost their lives before things return to ‘normal.’

Today, the People’s Republic of China declared a 3-day period of National Mourning.
