I, as the founder of this LaLa Blog, was invited to the opening ceremony but I was unable to attend for personal reasons but I am deeply grateful that our blog was invited and deeply regret not being there I got nothing but great comments on the environment of the place, the emotional and profound speeches given by the VIP guests as well as the amazing work everyone involved did to make this happen.
We must remember that we are still behind to be as open and free as everyone has the right to be but it is only together that will get there.
