Wenchuan reconstruction indeed a miracle

I was still saddened by the 2008 May 12th earthquake in Sichuan Province while watching the presently airing 10-part series documentary on CCTV. It has also given me a lot of hope and opened my eyes on what is possible. CCTV has every right to call the reconstruction a miracle. Despite the tragedy, in just three short years, whole cities have been built; it is mind boggling what the present day Chinese society is able to pull off. Click image below to the documentary site.

    A friend mentioned Japanese earthquake tsunami reconstruction effort on Facebook, so that got me interested in looking at how wenchuan / sichuan earthquake victims have fared. Surprisingly hidden harmonies was one of the the top google link for “Wenchuan reconstruction”.

    Indeed, the reconstruction is incredible especially in the light that it has been completed in less than 3 years, meanwhile Haiti is still a mess with massive cholera and rape. In fact I don’t think the countries that has been ‘liberated’ by the west, even look like the reconstructed Wenchuan.

    China has done an outstanding job.
