---let there be peace on earth---explored (#12)
In memory of those killed in the shooting at Aurora, Colorado. One of the victims was a 23 year old girl and a very close friend of my nephew. We have got to stop these senseless acts of violence.
Big Buddha, also know as Tian Tan Buddha is 34 metres (112 ft) tall, weighs 250 metric tons and was the world's tallest outdoor bronze seated Buddha prior to 2007. It reputedly can even be seen from as far away as Macau on a clear day. Visitors have to climb 240 steps in order to reach the Buddha. For more information, en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tian_Tan_Buddha
