Vancouver Olympics – Alert 3

Just a quick note to inform you that most of your local sports programs are going to be starting their pre-Olympics coverage of the 2010 Winter Olympic Games in Vancouver, BC, Canada, or already have.

Whether you are coming to Vancouver or Whistler or not, if you intend to support your nation’s team and get involved in learning more about the countries of the world and their peoples, then start to pay attention.

It’s also a time when the final teams are coalescing and the final meets are happening in a variety of sports, so there’s lots going on and there’s an increased incidence of injuries and near catastrophies as adrenalin starts to kick-in.

In sports, it’s all or nothing, and if you get to meet any of these high-caliber, high-energy people in person, as I have in the past, you will know that they operate in a whole other realm.

It helps us to understand that all of us have been given talents and gifts. They have utilized theirs to the utmost. What have we done with ours? How can we make the world a better place?

Certainly, there’s opportunity to help Haiti after their devastating earthquakes, without ever leaving home. Maybe that’s a goal to work on for the next decade.

The world is a small place, in the grand scheme of things, and we have more in common than we have differences. That’s an integral part of the Olympic Spirit. Please feel free to join in! You are most welcome.
