Sports fan (like myself) or not, everyone loves the Olympics.
When the Olympics roll around, everyone has a heightened sense of patriotism. Especially in the great moment when your country wins. You can reach out and high five a stranger- you can share a group hug with a nation. And, when your national anthem starts playing, forget it.
Everyone sings along, loud and proud, united in their voices and their hearts. There’ll be some cheers and some tears. Everyone, for a moment, is together. Politics don’t matter, race doesn’t matter, social status doesn’t matter. You stand as one.
P.S. Hope everyone enjoys the Opening Ceremonies tonight, especially our friends in London and around the UK! Go Team USA! 🙂
Admin: Yes, the Olympics is over and done with for now, but this was such a great post that I decided to still post it up.
