Chinese lawmakers are planning designating Sept 3 to mark victory in the anti-Japanese war and Dec 13 to commemorate victims in the Nanjing Massacre.  Tens of millions of Chinese people were killed, including the more than 300,000 people that were brutally slaughtered in the Nanjing Massacre in 1937. It provides an occasion for people to remember and pay tribute to the many who have died and also serves as a reminder for the Chinese that history should not be forgotten. Do you have similar memorial day in your home country? Why do you observe the day? What activities are held on memorial day on the national level? What do you normally do to commemorate memorial day?

i was there  last May in NanJing for visiting, and sure i would not miss the Nanjing massacre Memorial Hall. it was such a shock to your heart, i mean you know the history for a long time, but seeing it is totally a different concept. all the past dashed torwards to you in the same time and it took you a long time to have you out of this feeling. wow.

The Chinese people deserve to have their sacrifices remembered and memorialized in nationwide meditation.  The choice of Victory Day of September 3, 1945, and the Rape of Nanking of December 13, 1937, are very appropriate and worthy of everyone's show of respect.  Let the legislation be passed, the sooner the better.
