Children at Chinese embassy in US send wishes to Dorian

Chinese Ambassador to the US Cui Tiankai (center back row) and more than 20 students from the embassy's Sunshine School gathered on Thursday afternoon outside the Chinese embassy building to show support for eight-year-old canccer-stricken American boy Dorian Murray of Westerly, Rhode Island. Dorian has told his parents that his wish is to be famous in China and to see the Great Wall, which he called "kind of a bridge. People walk on it." The message, which was posted by his parents on Facebook, has drawn responses from countless Chinese netizens standing on the Great Wall in Beijing and holding signs saying "#D-Strong." Cui and the Sunshine School students also sent their best wishes to Dorian. The Chinese embassy building in Washington, designed by noted Chinese American architect I.M. Pei, resembles the beacon structure on the Great Wall. Chen Weihua/China Daily
