I've enjoyed the amazing and breathtaking opening & closing ceremony in Belgium & am aware that never I'll be watching something that will be able to compete with the grandeur your country has realized & achieved. The true competence and talent of your country and it's leaders is admirable, remarquable and a role model for the whole world. Moreover, the idea my daughter was present in your country as a student (& volunteer at the belgian embassy) fills me with proud. I could never more understand her deepest sympathy for the PR of China and its people. Please accept my feelings of gratitude and respect. You were all amazing! Congratulations."

It was also very nice to get to see some of your beautiful country and your wonderful people. I hope the spirit of the games will continue to grow and foster a deeper understanding amongst all the peoples of this world. We really are not very different from each other, and most of us want peace, harmony and understanding.
Thank you again for a wonderful two weeks.
Jerry C. in Florida USA"
