SHIFANG, Sichuan province: Feng Peipei promised days ago that she would celebrate her mother’s 36th birthday, which fell yesterday. It is a promise the 14-year-old girl will never be able to keep.

Yesterday morning, Yi Chuanying saw the remains of her daughter being pulled out from a collapsed three-story school in Hongbai town in the city of Shifang

“You promised we would be together for my birthday today, and for yours next month,” Yi, a divorced migrant worker who flew from Shenzhen in Guangdong province to the disaster site, cried. “You also promised to give me a belated Mothers’ Day gift. “But why did you break your promise, my dear daughter?”

The mountainous town of Hongbai is one of the worst-hit areas in Monday’s quake that struck Sichuan province. Life-detecting devices have found that most of the 700-odd students from the town’s primary and middle schools have no chance of survival, rescuers have said. “Today, some remains have even started to emit terrible smells. Hope of survivors is dim,” rescue team leader Wen Hongbin said.

  1. I have to show my respect for your kind-heartedness for those who require guidance on in this area. Your personal commitment to passing the message all through was pretty productive and have frequently permitted women much like me to achieve their dreams. Your new useful advice signifies a great deal to me and somewhat more to my colleagues. Regards; from all of us.

  2. It’s genuinely very complicated in this active life to listen news on TV,
    thus I just use internet for that purpose, and take
    the newest information.
