Dear all- if you haven’t seen this video from youtube about little girl crying out loud with Olympic Bear-it’s here.  I know we have much more serious reason to cry right now, but still…SO TOUCHING!

Here is a link to video of a girl Ksusha.

For non-Russian speakers:  The girl keeps saying : “By, my dear, by , My beloved !” Bye!!!

Her Mom try to comfort her and say:  Please, don’t cry, my kitty, THEY WILL BE BACK!

And Ksusha is answering:  I can’t stop crying!  I can’t!!!

It’s so moving… The video was taken by girl’s Mom and she posted it on youtube. For the first day on your tube this video was seen by 70 000 people.   Russian journalists found this girl and gave her Olympic Mishka (a Bear) .

…well, Ksusha wasn’t alone crying to Misha.  I also cried on closing ceremony, thinking of summer Olympics in 1980 in my childhood.  I know many others did as well.  Silly, but true … They will be back…Will they???
