If these London 2012 Olympic Games don’t hurry up and end, I’m going to have to take a couple days off just to sleep. Aren’t they just amazing? So many interesting stories – angles – issues – celebrations and heartbreak. Whether you are a sports fanatic, a patriot, or one who simply enjoys pageantry, there really has been something for everyone, which is revealed in the daily conversations you hear at work, church, the gas station, grocery store, business meetings, parties, etc. The fact is – the athletes and these Games have united the world. The question is- what was uniting us before these Games?
The only answer I can come up with is nothing, unless of course you are some way connected to Special Olympics, which helps all of us step away from the gloom and doom and celebrate skill, courage, sharing, and joy. It’s what Special Olympics and our athletes do. It brings us hope. Need a dose?
