Ok, I am a bit of a sap, but the opening ceremony of the Olympics always brings tears to my eyes. This year, more than ever. Disregarding politics and focusing on sport bring us – the world together, for me, I see hope. I see past the required fake smiles on the people in the audience and I see wonder in their eyes and a dream for the future. Every single athlete is there because they have worked tirelessly to be there. Every person there represents a kid who had a dream and has made it. They are all an inspiration to us all to work toward our own dreams and goals, and also to take a moment here and there to celebrate our successes – whether big or small.
