  •  So glad that you got tickets to the Kids' Ball! (2+ / 0-)

    And that you were able to get into the ceremony! I was at the Purple Gate too (unfortunately I am one of the Survivors of the Purple Tunnel of Doom) and can well imagine your daughter's fright upon being caught amid so many people. I'm about her height and also got smushed while everyone was trying to press forward and it was pretty anxiety-inducing all right. It is definitely a testament to the generosity and goodwill of everyone there that no one was hurt and that your daughter's fears were allayed.

    In a weird way, I was also the beneficiary of a very kind person or persons - someone shoved me through the Purple Gate just as they were closing it because - and I swear this is what I heard - because I was "small"! ^_^
