President Bush Extends Condolences to Victims of Earthquakes in China

I extend my condolences to those injured and to the families of the victims of today's earthquake in China's Sichuan Province. I am particularly saddened by the number of students and children affected by this tragedy. The thoughts and prayers of the American people are with the Chinese people, especially those directly affected.  The United States stands ready to help in any way possible.
