It's all about millennial Chinese culture that influenced all Asia and its oriental philosophy. So old, rich, and important as the Greeks and Romans were for the Western culture. China was ALWAYS a very important country indeed!!

“和” is one of the important virtue of China culture. Today is the 12th year after this ceremony, the world is getting more and more divided, sadly.

12年过去了
记得01年深奥成功时全小区的家家户户突然同时爆发的欢呼
08年历经灾难后奥运会的如期到来
12年后再看开幕式依然感动
天佑中华 祖国长治久安

I remember being in San Francisco, CA and discovering a demonstration at the end of Market Street. Curious, I walked closer and learned some folks were protesting China being chosen to host the Olympics. Bored, lonely, and still curious, I joined them. Then, they started moving. I was too curious. I wound up going on a long demonstration march along The Embarcadero with this group. Eventually, I was running with the group toward the end wondering why I allowed my out-of-shape body to do all this.

In the end, I watched the 2008 Olympics on television and loved it! To this day, I think China's 2008 Olympic Opening is the best I have ever seen. I am glad to be an open minded persin, on both counts.

This is the greatest opening ceremony I've ever seen. The way they lit the flame brought tears to my eyes, the human artistic achievement.
