I decided to follow the 2010 Winter Olympics mainly because my children are at the age where they can understand the meaning of unity and patriotism and what it means to be a Canadian. I wanted them to feel proud of who they are and where they live. In the end, I accomplished my mission with flying colours. All throughout the Games, both my daughters were fascinated by the abilities & determination of these hardworking athletes from all around the world. This only stressed the message we have been trying to teach our girls is that anything is possible when you put your mind and heart into it. Greatness can be achieved through the power of a dream
Stephen Moccio and Alan Frew created a wonderful score that embraces the spirit of the Olympic Games. "I Believe" sung beautifully by Nikki Yanofsky, has resonated across this country powerfully uniting Canadians. From the awestruck child witnessing the Olympic Torch pass them by leading to the Games to the Gold Medal winning goal by Sidney Crosby 7:40 into overtime play, Canadian athletes have done us proud !
I just wanted to share some of my favourite moments from the Games and I invite you to do the same! There were so many ! So proud to be a Canadian!
Believe in the power of you and I.
Anything is possible.
