I'M A SAP FOR A GOOD INSPIRATIONAL STORY
The majority of us love seeing others excell. When someone falls off the parallel bars or the pummel horse, the audience gives a collective gasp. When a diver makes a less-than-graceful dive into the water, we wince. Why? It's not happening to us. Nor do we personally know the athlete. As human beings, we just hate seeing others' hopes and hard work dashed, whether the athlete comes from USA, France, Croatia or Japan. We are uplifted by their competitive spirits and want the best for them.
Too bad they can't all win.
I'll be glued to the Olympics the next two weeks. Cheering, crying, and gasping. How about you. Can we get a gold medal for cheering them on?
BEST OF LUCK TO TEAM USA.
