The Red Cross Delivers in China's Sichuan Province

In May 2008, I went to Chengdu to help coordinate FedEx relief efforts after the devastating Wenchuan earthquake in Sichuan province. The earthquake, which hit on May 12 at 2:28pm, registered 8.0 on the richter scale and demolished homes and livelihoods. In its wake, tens of thousands of people were left dead and those who survived were homeless.

Some years ago, I participated here in Memphis as an extra in the filming of the movie The Firm, based on the novel by John Grisham. I was an “elevator guy.” I stood by an elevator door for two days while they shot a scene that lasted no more than 30 seconds. It was fascinating to see everything that goes into making an action scene come to life on the screen. I did not win an Oscar for my part. I actually wound up on the cutting room floor – apparently too much competition for the leading male actor!
