The world lights up for World Diabetes Day

The world lights up for World Diabetes Day

World Diabetes Day - November 14

In a good way, that is. Over 240 monuments around the world were lit up in a festive blue to commemorate World Diabetes Day, including:

  • The Sydney Opera House, Australia
  • the Burj Al Arab hotel in Dubai, UAE
  • Christ the Redeemer, Rio de Janiero, Brazil
  • Banting House, London, Ontario, Canada
  • Rhine Tower, Dusseldorf, Germany
  • Hellenic Parliament, Athens, Greece
  • Tour Eiffel, Paris, France
  • Leaning Tower of Pisa, Pisa, Italy
  • Tokyo Tower, Japan
  • Torre Mayor, Mexico City, Mexico
  • Globe Arena, Stockholm, Sweden
  • London Eye, London, UK
  • Sears Tower, Empire State Building, LAX and others in United States

Also, huge human blue circles were formed around the world, including the one I participated in at the United Nations building in New York City:

In the interest of keeping posts relatively readably short, I’ll write more on that later.
