Beijing Olympics Today

One World, One Dream. The motto of the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing, China symbolizes what we all are, dreamers who belong to one world we call our home.

The theme of the opening ceremonies held today at the National Stadium is that of a beautiful Olympics. Indeed, beauty has graced the world through the sights and sounds at the Bird's Nest. Here are a couple, taken from the official 2008 Olympics site.

Chinese singer Liu Huan and British soprano Sarah Brightman sing the theme song, "You and Me"

I was hoping to find some site that would at least stream the opening ceremonies.
