“I HAVE waited for this moment for more than two years,” Zhang Qingfang said. “Finally, a place of my own.”

Zhang lives in Yingxiu town in Wenchuan, Sichuan. She was talking about her new home. She and her 11-year-old daughter moved into it last month.

The 39-year-old woman lost her husband and her home during the earthquake on May 12, 2008. The earthquake killed at least 87,000 people and left millions homeless.

Now, three years after the quake, the worst hit areas in Sichuan have risen from the ruins (废墟).

“We have done 95 percent of the rebuilding work during the last three years and we will finish the rest by the end of September,” said Mu Hong, deputy director of the National Development and Reform Commission (NDRC, 国家发展与改革委员会).

In Sichuan alone, people have built or repaired nearly 3,000 schools, 1,000 hospitals and more than 5 million homes, according to the NDRC.

“Now every family has a home and a job, and everyone has social security (社会保障). And the economy has developed,” Mu said.

While the rebuilding is still going on, some areas, such as Beichuan, are keeping some ruins from the quake to make into memorials (纪念碑).

“Keeping the quake ruins is to keep a memory of the dead,” said Li Zhengshou, director of the old town preservation headquarters (老县城保护工作指挥部).

“The ruins are also a warning for people to remember to respect Mother Nature.”

BONUS

用英语怎么表达“怀念”?

英语口语中通常用remember或miss来表达“对人或事物的怀念和想念”,其中前者含有“记住”的意味。另外,还可以用recall或remind表示“回想起”。
