Where: Washington DC the reflecting pool

When: Sunday, September 12, 2004 .

Why: On the third anniversary, we have chosen the most appropriate location to celebrate Life, Liberty and Beauty. We will encircle the site as symbolism for our nation's unity, our people's eternal memorial, and the spirit of our country's future. Our plan is to symbolize the beauty, strength,and courage of our nation by unfurling 2 miles of silk banner along and around the reflecting pool in our Capital.

In the past we have performed 2 artwork memorials: It was covered internationally by CNN, NBC, ABC, CBS, Japan TV, CCTV (China National),Span TV, Russian National TV and was listed in TIME magazine, making the front pages of many newspapers and headlining many TV and radio news broadcasts including NEW YORK POST, NEW YORK DAILY NEWS, S.F.CHRONICLE, S.J.MERCURY, S.F.EXAMINER, C.C.TIME...
