As we were leaving the Dragon Palace, Cheryl handed me a couple of fortune cookies, since the one I got originally did not have any fortune for me.... I read one when I got home...

"I hear and I forget. I see and I remember. I do and I understand."

Well... This certainly applies to what we did today.... I am not sure if I was the only one that teared up, as the crowd started moving towards the "start" sign...

This morning was by far, one of the most moving events that I have experienced.... It absolutely amazing how many people can be united by the power of HOPE...
