I have to say that I love the Olympics. There is so much history and barriers broken and trampled on by amazing athletes.
I remember reading about how African Americans were allowed to compete and there was the law or whatever that banned any sort of racism from the Olympics. There was such an uproar about that, but gosh was it such a moment that dipped into our hearts.
So many people have trained and struggled to lift themselves up and also teach us that we too, can do anything.
I am so proud of Gabby Douglas winning the gold in the all round American Gymnastics. All I could see was this beautiful group of girls giving their all to themselves, their families and their country.
Most impressive in all this is to see her give praises to God. This helps young girls and young people everywhere know that it is okay to be proud in your faith and to give glory where glory belongs. I want to see these good qualities in my daughter.
For all the little girls with big dreams.
And doesn't it just bring tears to your eyes supporting our American team? It's almost like supporting our soldiers going into war for our country!
It's a marvelous feeling!
Side note: I think it's awesome that our National Anthem is being played so often! Seems it's rarely played here in the US except on special days.
I'm so proud of our American team!
And now for the track & field! *Rubs hands in glee*
