Next year, it will be the 60th Anniversary of the founding of the People’s Republic of China. 173 days and 58 years ago, our fathers brought forth upon this land a new nation, conceived in the people’s democratic dictatorship and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created republic. Now we are engaging in a great but hard war between nature and human being. From 12th May, 2008 so far, we are met on the battlefield of this earth quake and we have come to dedicate a portion of that field as a final-resting place for those who gave their lives that more people might live, and for those survivors and victims who suffered from this terrible sudden catastrophe.
Why am I tearful in my eyes? Cause I deeply love this land.
This tragedy cannot work to destroy the national consciousness of the Chinese people. All the nation people had contributed to their utmost power to help the suffering people. Some famous entrepreneurs represented the group or the individual contributed their money to the victim people. Earth quake happened in Sichuan province, but also shocked the world. Spiritually International covered to call for rescue actions; rescue teams have arrived in quake-hit areas to assist local disaster relief efforts. Rescue teams from Japan, South Korea, Russia and Singapore arrived in quake-hit Sichuan’s provincial capital Chengdu. They then headed to some of the worst-hit areas such as Qingchuan, Shifang and Mianzhu cities to carry out rescue work. In wealth, Offers of help are coming in thick and fast. Flags are to be kept at half-mast and all public amusements will be suspended for three days from Monday as China begins an official mourning period for victims of the May 12 earthquake. 6~.K$r+B6u(h.L+F7p Abusiness forum,trade forum,business opportunity,Business China,Business India,Brazil businessThe State Council, the Cabinet, on Sunday ordered a nationwide display of respect for the dead.

But, in a larger sense, we can not give up, we can not desert, we can not abandon this ground. The brave men, living and dead have consecrated it far above our power to add or detract. In a further sense, the great concentrated patriotism Chinese people expressed had attracted the world also. In the other sense, we cannot forget, we cannot neglect, the friendly men, spirit support or matter support have denoted their extreme sympathy. We definitely understand that the world will little note what we say here, but it can never forget what they did. And now, it is for us, the living, rather to be dedicated to the great battle remaining before us, that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause, contributed to your little power, maybe you can stretch the blue sky for them. I believe that a phoenix that rises from its ashes will be even more dazzlingly beautiful.
