How close I was to the earthquake

Staying in USA almost made me forget how close I was to that earthquake

I just went there (Sichuan) during my spring break in high school in April 2008
In May, on the day I was taking my Calc AP test, on the other side of the earth, this earthquake happened, while I know nothing about it as I as taking my AP exam.

If it happened one month early… I don’t know how would that impact my life

I can give a MLK speech here: I have a dream, using chaos theory (part of my research) to predict earthquake, so no more people will die in earthquake.
