The Olympic Moment That Made Me Cry and Gave Me Hope
I'm so glad the Olympics are a thing. Athletes from almost 100 countries come together for more than 2 weeks. Sure there is athletic rivalry and a spirit of competition but most of the athletes can call their team mates friends. And though we hear a lot about rivalries between the U.S. and Canada, for example, we know the two countries generally get along very well.
As I got choked up watching the skating exhibition, I realized what I love most about the event. It's a visual representation of what COULD be possible someday. Medalists from different countries worked together to perform a big group skate to a song from "The Greatest Showman." At the end, they all joined together for a massive group hug. My eyes welled up with tears. Wouldn't it be great if people of all nations could work together in harmony? Wouldn't it nice if governments could work out their differences?
And if North Korea and South Korea could peacefully participate in the Opening Ceremonies and then share hockey talents on the same team, is it possible that the ice between the two countries could start to melt?
