Moment of Silence / Prayer for Earthquake Victims

News Flash!  I have just been informed that today and tomorrow at 2:28 P.M. (China time), all of China will stop for three minutes silence in remembrance for the victims of the earthquake. 

The earthquake started at 2:28 P.M. a week ago today and lasted for three minutes.  A friend who sent email said that the three minutes when the earth shook was a very, very long time.

    It is indeed a progress for China to mourn for the ordinary people for the first time in two thousand years\’ history and have a half-mast for the victims is exactly the right thing for the government to do so.
