We had just finished the last of three afternoon sessions today. It was about 4:30 when the ground started trembling. I was standing on the side of the school building where we were located and as I started to notice the ground moving I saw several of the students from the school start to run away from the building. They were obviously more attuned to what was happening than I was. Then I felt a rock or piece of roof or something hit my head and I ran away from the building too!

Many were shaken up and activated. My heart was beating pretty fast! FHE staff immediately went to work with some of the adults and children we had just finished working with and some of our translators and support staff were shaken up as well. I have new appreciation for the phrase "shaken up" Some of our newly trained trainees started using skills they had learned. Others were upset and needed help themselves. I myself used some of the techniques that I have learned from our trainers and Ale Duarte led the entire bus in some tracking exercises as we returned to Jiangyou and then Mianyang. We then sang songs to continue to discharge activation. Ale sang a few good Portuguese songs!

When we returned to Mianyang Lisa LaDue had found that we had experienced a 6.1 aftershock that was centered 45 miles north of Mianyang - Almost exactly where we were.


We are all ok but were all, literally, shaken up!
