Olympic Opening Ceremonies

The idealogy of the Olympic Games is something that we as a society and as a globe need to take heed of. It was touching to see 80 nations walk into Tourino last night each being proud of their heritage yet at the same time being proud of being a part of something bigger than themselves.

To me the most touching part of the ceremony was when Peter Gabriel sang John Lennon's Imagine and the cameras panned to the athletes who were holding each other and swaying to the music. Not one countries athletes holding to their team mates swaying to the music but ALL of the athletes from ALL of the countries, big and small, swaying as one. It was a moving statment of what life on this earth could be!
