Earlier today, China was hit with a massive earthquake. I saw the pictures on the BBC (source: http://news.bbc.co.uk/) and I was horrified. But, I was very very impressed by the reaction of the Chinese Leaders. The Chinese President called for an all-out effort and within two hours, the Prime Minister was on a plane to the stricken region to oversee relief efforts. This is quite remarkable and it is what leadership and responsbility entails. Here is a picture, courtesy of the BBC (http://news.bbc.co.uk/ retrieved May 12, 2008). I was quite impressed!!!
