In Remembrance

Tonight we went to the U.S. Embassy and listened to Ambassador Gary Locke give a beautiful speech in remembrance of all those who have lost their lives in terrorist attacks. He lit a candle, shared the light with his beautiful wife and children, who then shared with the audience. The he and all the children and their parents walked to the reflecting pool and as is the custom of the Chinese, lite candles and set them afloat in the pool. Because we are not "employees" we were not allowed to bring our cameras and phones inside the embassy. My friend, Rodica, was able to bring her camera in and let me use it to take pictures. Will post when I get them.
