Tomorrow (Monday) at 2:28pm, one week after a devastating series of earthquakes first shook Sichuan province, China will observe a three-minute silence. The Olympic torch relay, currently winding its way to Beijing, will be suspended for three days - out of respect for those affected by the disaster.
