The Spirit of the Olympics
I honestly think I must have had something to do with the olympics in a former life. Nothing will bring a tear to my eye as easily as watching the opening ceremonies and seeing the olympic cauldron be lit.
Growing up watching Nadia take the gold, I dreamed of finding my sport and competing in the olympics. At my age, my only hopes now are sailing and equestrian. Still, one of my more reachable goals is to attend an olympic opening ceremony. One day... maybe in two years in Vancouver?
As the next 17 days progress, I know I will be watching the competitions; still getting misty as the U.S. flags are raised and our national anthem plays. Do you plan on watching?
