National Day of Mourning: Landslide in Gansu

Sunday was a national day of mourning for the landslide victims in Gansu Province. Over 1000 people are dead & more than 500 people are still missing.

All entertainment outlets in China were closed for the day. The movie theater & karaoke bar in the mall where I work were dark, & there was no mall music playing, similar to the day of mourning held in April of this year for the earthquake victims in Qinghai.

All entertainment at the World Expo was apparently also cancelled for the day, & memorials were held all over China.
