The destruction and disappearance of cultural relics not only took away the cultural relics themselves, but also took away the millennial civilization carried by the cultural relics. A cultural ambition brings the world's vigilance and attention to the protection of cultural relics. Civilization is fragile and tenacious. What we can do is to do our best to protect it, to delay its disappearance and to pass on its spirit.

I sincerely hope that the cultural relics will be able to stay away from the disaster and pass on from generation to generation.
