Pope's Death And World Gathering
Well, Vatican City has certainly been overwhelmingly packed the past week with millions and millions from all over the world. Since the death of Pope John Paul II, there has been a constant poor in of visitors wanting to catch a last glimpse, and/or be part of the funeral. Watching on television it was amazing to see how many people had gathered not only there, but in other places where he had visited and spent time. He has been praised by many of the world leaders and many came to see the funeral. President Bush along with the past two presidents of the U.S. paid their respects. I think something like this, though tragic for much of the world, was certainly something that brought many countries together in peace and harmony. With all that has been going on lately around the globe, I think it was certainly a good dampener and perhaps helped reunify some relationships.
