50,000!!! - party

We had a celebration today to mark 50,000 young people through our touring activities. In fact we passed that number some days ago but in a tiny cultural centre which didn't have space for a party, so we did it in Shahba. Mrs Assad attended, we had a cake, and invited child number 20,000, 40,000 and 50,000 to come on stage and receive some gifts. Lots of fun, balloons, noise and media present, so we should get good coverage.

A camera crew from NBC were in tow, and they were gobsmacked at what they found. The interviewer kept saying how different it was from what they had expected. I didn't say that some of that might just be the fault of the media. Anyway, they interviewed Mrs Assad and later me and Dina, and took hours of footage, so pehaps some of this may appear on prime-time American television. Every little helps.
