Pretend that the city under the fireworks is Beijing and not Hong Kong.

At last, my beloved friend in China, Ben, got the job of his very most lofty dreams. The call came just a few minutes ago. What seemed so impossible yesterday is today a magnificent reality.

To everyone who helped and who offered to help (and there were certainly a few), I can never thank you all enough. I wish I could convey just how much this means to me.

This was Ben’s dream, and seeing him attain it washes away months of anguish — mine and his. There is a god; there are miracles.
