HOLY LIGHT David Grunfeld and I wanted to get to the floor, but the guards made it difficult. They didn't know we were intruders, but they did know we weren't allowed on the field. Finally, we found a guardsman who didn't care and he pointed us to a narrow slit in the police barricades behind the south goal posts. We were in. I hurried to where the spotlight hit the turf and waited for the children. They were attracted to the light just like I was and many played and danced in its glory. My shutter speeds were too slow to freeze any dancing action and I had to settle for the frames of children walking past.
