In the preface to the book:

"The history of mankind is full of reconstructions and efforts as well as destruction and disasters. On the night of February 6, we all woke up to a great disaster. There was a big earthquake and we lost our relatives. Our houses were destroyed, we experienced great dramas...

The title on the cover, "Everything Reminds Us of It" is originally a lyric (Everything Reminds Me of You). We always thought that those who fell in love would experience this... But we have seen in this earthquake that we are experiencing the same things... Especially people who work and live in the earthquake zone remember that moment every day and every moment... For this purpose, we can create a social memory with our experiences and sharing. That is why we attach great importance to expressing feelings and thoughts and it is very valuable to us. Although it is very difficult for all of us to remember and express what we have witnessed and experienced, it is just as meaningful and valuable to record and make notes for the future. At the same time, there will also be an emotional release, relaxation and relief... We conducted this study for this purpose.”
