Since the A-Z Challenge had a Zebra on their web site, Janjak seemed the perfect way to say adieu and merci to everyone on the challenge, the editors and all the bloggers out there in cyberspace from so many places. This has been a challenge and a wonderful trip for me.
To end on a positive inspiring note, I am adding a link to a segment I saw a few weeks ago on 60 Minutes, here in the United States, which perhaps many of you saw. It is about an orchestra that was created in the Kinshasa, Congo, the capitol of a poor and war-torn country. The people who have come together to make beautiful music in Kinshasa, feel priveleged to be able to be part of something greater than their day-to-day experiences. As one woman says, she feels that while she is singing classical music, she is in a different place. Hard to describe what one man did years ago in the Congo, beginning with just a few instruments and progressing to a complete orchestra, singers and chorus.
Arman Diangienda is the gentleman who is behind this amazing story. His biography is on Google.
