Several MEP’s (Members of the European Parliament) had responded on the organizers invitation to attend a special ceremony entitled “The European Family: Harmony in Diversity”. There was a nice set-up organized just outside the entrance of the Parliament building, including a small photo gallery with worldwide impressions of the Run.
The President of the Parliament, Mr. Hans-Gert Pöttering had agreed to attend the ceremony as well. Mr. Pöttering gave a glowing and illumining speech in which he compared the vision and ideals of the World Harmony Run with those of the European Parliament. “The World Harmony Run is a symbol of the fact that we all belong to a common European family," he said.
Kinga Gál, in the cool weather of Brussels, outlined the warmness represented by this torch.
After the ceremony, Kinga Gál with other MEP’s was running along Brussels streets to accompany the torch during its way out of the city.
