… Welcome Rio
Oh yeah and let the Samba begin, if this promises to be as good as this year.
London Summer Games are over. Lights are out in London after the gigantic Fireworks, the myriad of stars on a beautiful stage and in the stadium. Yes, these 2012 Summer Games were exceptionnal. We should once again salute the 10000+ volunteers that have given their time, energy and pride in the name of Patriotism and for the love of their country. That was purely the direct and true translation and most beautiful response to JFK’s famous words:
… ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country.
And they, the volunteers, but not only, just did that! They did for their country, they did for the World to see how much geniuses Brittons could be, how big their heart was. Same can apply to the thousands of courageous handicapped athletes who fought not only for better perception and acceptation of their condition but for their nation as well.
LONDON 2012? What a lesson!
