Man, I hated the Russians and the Czechoslovakians. Wanted to pulverize the Japanese, too. Don’t even get me started on the Romanians. Didn’t care for the Netherlands, either. (still don’t know where that country is)
Then, I met some Russians and some Romanians…and they were hard to hate when face to face. Dang it!
With advancing technology, travel and relaxed borders, “It’s a small world after all” has never rung more true. The Olympic games in Sochi, Russia, feel vastly different than they did in 1980 in Lake Placid, New York.
And, much better.
But, today, my joy comes in seeing people, regardless of country or status, give their all to something they love…medal, or no medal.
Leaders are cheerleaders of the human spirit. Cheer on! (140 words)
