I was in Guangzhou when the 5th most severe earthquake struck. The 9 Richter scale quake has caused horrible consequences as reported in the media. This massive disaster totally took the limelight from another earthquake in China, if I’m not wrong, in Yunnan. The string of earthquakes recently has rattled me to no end. I sincerely pray for their well being. My colleagues has participated in several fund raising initiatives to help those affected and I am very happy they took the initiative.
I think we should really contemplate our good fortunes as Singaporeans. We take for granted that we are in a earthquake relatively safe zone. We are also relatively safe from tsunamis, volcanoes, typhoons etc etc.
Do take some time and count your lucky stars.
