PonchoMeg: The Modern Bohemian Loves the Olympics!
At school, we are doing a big lesson on Wednesday that ties in with the Olympics. We will be sending the kids to different "stations" throughout their time with us in the gym, and at my station, I am going to be showing them flags of different countries and playing them the different national anthems. I'm pretty excited.
Speaking of national anthems, nothing quite fills me with more American pride than hearing the Star Spangled Banner during the Olympics. I think it's because it represents a whole country. But more importantly, it represents a dream that was actually realized for someone who is kind of like me. Those Americans on the podium, those few talented and lucky people, prove that dreams can come true for us. Dreams come true.
That's why I really love the Olympics. I like to believe in the power of dreams.
