By Turbi in the comment on Quake death toll nears 20,000
All what happened at the epicenter is so shocking. Helpers like soldiers, firefighters and volunteers must face pure horror when arriving there. But there is a sunbeam among all this devastation and sadness. While I was chatting with a Chinese student today she got the first message from her classmate who survived. This might help to overcome this hard period of time. I cross my fingers for all who are there. Many greetings from Germany to China!
