More than 60 celebrities from the Chinese mainland, Hong Kong and Taiwan gathered on friday for an earthquake relief gala in Chengdu, capital of southwestern China's Sichuan Province, to encourage the quake victims.

The website sina.com.cn reported that the gala, entitled "In the Name of Lives", was organized by the quake-hit province to show the spirit of the Chinese to the world.

The appearance of 108 People's Liberation Army soldiers onstage was the gala's first highlight. The audience gave them a standing ovation for their quick and unparalled efforts rescuing the injured and homeless.

The heart-warming stories of rescues and relief efforts moved both the narrators themselves and the audience to tears. Singers sang household songs to show their support for quake victims.

its really amazing if someone can survive for nearly 3 weeks (if i am correct) without food or water!! God is helping us chinese people =] this is why i am wondering why they still try to encourage people if they know that its impossible -- maybe they want hope???
i have recently donated £10 to the earthquake ---- note £10 is a lot to me!!! i don't get any pocket money -- i don't have a job as i am still 13 =]] hehe.

if i was there -- i mean at the place where this 'gala' took place, i'd be crying A LOT =[[ so many sad things happened these past years since 2000...Is God punishing us??? what did we do??how do we stop these things??
^^^^ GLOBAL WARMING!!! I HATE YOU!!!!! gggrrrrrr!!!
