I am very sentimental about overwhelmingly significant moments. Trust me--you don't want to miss this. The lighting of the 2012 Olympic Cauldron in London and it was one of the most beautiful things I've ever seen. It made me cry. The flame is lit at the temple of Hera in Olympia and the cauldron is carried to the Panathenaic Stadium where the Olympic Torch is lit. The Torch then travels to the host country to light cauldron there. Click the picture to watch the video. It's only 9 minutes…
