As this is my first year...I have just got to say that I was completely blown away today by the Parade of Flags. As I crouched to take pictures of all the participants coming up the aisle, I noticed that continually there were tears running down my face. Sorry if this sounds completely corny but I have never seen anything so beautiful. I am not naive enough to think that students get along all the time but I can't help believing that if we could just bottle what these kids have together, what we saw today, then the world could be better.
OK, now I will shut up and get over it, ( I imagine that is what you all are thinking ) but you guys are veterans in overseas schools and they just don't have anything like in the US. Somehow it just doesn't compare.
