"One World, One Dream, For Everyone"

This was a very touching moment during the 2008 Olympics opening ceremony, particularly because of the significance of the little boy who it's said had helped save someone from the rubble after the earthquake. Let's hope and pray that China might also find the benefits in demonstrating how it can allow Tibet to live in peace, truly autonomously...because there are innocent children there too.

"Waters Of Babylon"

video

Scene from A&E's Mad Men episode.

"Psalm 137 is one of the best known of the Biblical psalms. Its opening lines, 'By the rivers of Babylon...' (Septuagint: 'By the waters of Babylon...') have been set to music on several occasions...by many composers. The first verse was also used for Don Mclean's song 'Babylon'." Mclean's version is played in the above video.
