The Opening Ceremony of the 2008 Summer Olympics

The Opening Ceremony of the 2008 Beijing Summer Olympics was AMAZING!!! There really aren't words for how incredible it was.

The combination of technology and 'people power' was really perfect. This shows what you can do when you have a grand vision -- and tons of $$$ to make that vision happen.

Here are just a few images, for those who missed it...

And these photos don't even begin to do the show justice. Seriously. I should do more screen caps to share, but I doubt I'll find the time for it. Anyway, it was worth the hours (and hours) of viewing involved to see the entire show. (smile)

The lighting of the Olympic Torch was stunning. (whew)

And all politics aside (and that's not an easy thing, granted), I was very moved.
