I love the Olympics and I hope we have more great moments

Moments like these is what makes the Olympics so great. Sure it shouldn’t be about politics, but sometimes politics comes into it and makes it so much more important (Tommie Smith and John Carlos, 1968). But at the same time, politics makes it worse (Terrorist attacks, 1972).

As I had mentioned in a previous blog post, sports gives us a platform to make a difference in the world.

So as the Olympics Opening Ceremony open up today, I hope that this becomes a platform for athletes. I know that there are a lot of problems in the world and with these Olympics, we might be opened up to the world by athletes who care about real issues.

I usually don’t like to cheer for any country in particular, but I will be leaning towards my home (USA) and my family home (China). But it really doesn’t matter to me. This is a time celebration of for the world, for us to grow closer together, and this is what I hope we get out of it.
