About this event

This year is 2012, the Maya peoples have predicted that human beings are going through a lasted more than 5000 years of galaxies update long before, ranging from BC3113 to AD 2012. Facing the crisis of global warming and natural disasters, the legend of doomsday in 2012 has gained a high popularity around the world. Actually, it reveals the human beings’ hopeless fear when they have to face a series of catastrophe, namely: financial crisis , food safety, terrorist activities and so on. Consequently , everything is attached a stamp of doomsday. Now consider, if the doomsday is going to arrive, whether you can confront it frankly, whether there is a regret, whether there is something left undone. And now, the doomsday will come, whether we should re-examine our lives, get rid of the complicated thoughts, make our blundering heart peaceful, board the ark of action, and restart our navigation!
Nevertheless, we should keep the faith that the 2012 is not the end of time, it is a new start. Under the blundering circumstance, we must find our own inner aspirations, enjoy our own precious youth time, and do something meaningful. Try our best to get the offish relationship between citizens and the lost of our life travels out of our daily lives. The future of trusting and encouraging each other will come true.
