62 year old Zhou Yunhong tells of her desparate attempt to save her grandson and husband when the Sichuan earthquake struck. "When it happened I was in the courtyard, everything was moving terribly, my immediate thought was to run up to wake my husband and grandson who were sleeping in our home on the 4th floor. I ran up the stairs of the building and fell many times because I could not keep my balance. It was awful and we would have all died if the building collapsed. The building next door crushed many people but ours somehow held up". This is her fourth visit to her home since the quake, "We've lost everything but at least we are alive." The Sichuan earthquake of 12/05/2008 measured 8.0 on the Richter scale and has displaced five million people in Sichuan Province.
