To all of our dear, dear friends of Half the Sky – YOU made it happen!
This week in Beijing we got some wonderful news. Thanks to the concerted efforts of our most extraordinary HTS family, I am going to carry the Olympic Torch in Beijing!!
I do not yet know if I will be permitted to run with the children. That will be up to the Olympic Committee. But you can be sure of one thing:
Whether or not I am allowed to run WITH the children, the world will know that I am running FOR them.
Thank you, everyone, for helping to share the Olympic spirit with China’s orphans. I know that those children who are old enough to understand will be so proud that they have a place in China’s grand celebration.
With love and thanks beyond measure,
