2. "中国历史地图 Historical Atlas of China":
When I watched this 42 minutes video on YouTube some weeks ago, I was nearly moved to tears.
Many thoughts and emotions ran through my mind.
I cannot help but wonder how many persons lived and died in the 4,000 years that were depicted in the video and what were the circumstances of their lives and deaths.
I cannot help but wonder how many persons died as a result of wars and natural disasters and how many of those were unnatural and preventable.
I cannot help but wonder how many persons dedicated their lives to the betterment of China and how many of those ended in despair.
I cannot help but wonder why China misses opportunity after opportunities for reform in the last 200 years and seems to be continuing doing so.
May God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, be gracious and merciful to China and her people.
