On May 19, 2008, one week after the quake I joined thousands of mourners in Tiananmen Square to observe 3 minutes of silence, which I wrote about in a post titled "A Nation Mourns."

Even though life goes on, and the world has moved on to other events, it's important to stop and remember those who are still hurting.
