#117 when earth shook

He cried when the earth shook

schools, hospitals and homes turn to rubble

burying the living

roads inaccessible.

In helplessness,

man dropped his differences and ego

to help the devastated.

Courage found in victims to start afresh…

He cried when his wife left him

the innocent 15-month-old son

a stamp of their short-gun marriage

causing a deeper earthquake

in life.

#113

Most interesting! I received this sms on the recent happenings in China — when adding the single numerics, they all add up to 08.

  • On Jan 25, the snowstorm preventing many from returning home for family reunion at the Spring festival celebration — mother nature from the sky (天灾):   1+2+5= 8
  • Mar 14, human rights groups gathered in protest about Tibet during the Olympic Torch Relay — man (人huo):   3+1+4 = 8
  • May 12, the 7.9 richter scale earthquake in Sichuan — mother nature under the earth (地 zhen):    5+1+2 = 8

Coincidence? hahahaha…

The Olympic Games will be held in Beijing on August 8th, 2008:  080808!

#48 earth hour

the Earth Hour event is

a campaign to bring awareness to climate change/global warming.

“In 2008, 24 global cities will participate in Earth Hour at 8pm on March 29. Earth Hour is the highlight of a major campaign to encourage businesses, communities and individuals to take the simple steps needed to cut their emissions on an ongoing basis. It is about simple changes that will collectively make a difference – from businesses turning off their lights when their offices are empty, to households turning off appliances rather than leaving them on standby.” [www.earthhour.org]
