    That must of been breath taking, what a beautiful way to remember those who are loved and missed.

    I saw that picture and I had the same impression expressed by hypatia - 'breathtaking' and 'how appropriate for remembering lost love ones'.

    I was trying to find a better picture or video. What a beautiful tradition.

    In a related story, 5000 forest fires were reported in the neighboring country of Burma today.

    damn, I wanted to be the first one with the tasteless jokes.

    I was thinking more along the line of putting out the fires with a bunch of water, a tidal wave maybe.
