Time: 24 hours before deadly earthquake.

Location: Beichuan Middle School's playground

A teacher of Beichuan Middle School took these 17 photos on May 11, 2008. They were also uploaded on the teacher's blog the same day, only 24 hours before the earthquake. Many netizens, including me, have read this blog again and again. We are praying that we could see the teacher's updates and get more information.

It can be discerned from these photos that the senior students were playing sports and games with their teachers to release the stress caused by studying for the upcoming university entrance examinations. All the students were smiling and looked excited. A mere 24 hours later the deadly earthquake struck this unfortunate school. Those innocent smiling faces would not be seen again. If the earthquake had not happened, these senior students would have attended their university entrance examinations next month just like all the other students in China.

Let us pray for students' unrealized dreams.
