A year and 18 days ago

A year and eighteen days ago I had just returned from South Korea watching Alex represent the United States of America in the World Winter Special Olympic Games. In honor of this life changing experience and this year Winter's Olympics in Sochi, Russia I am going to republish the posts about the Olympics.


SOG - So much to write about!

Although it took over 44 hours I am happily nestled on my couch watching my favorite TV shows. Alex's last race was amazing. She was seeded sixth of seven and raced her way all the way up to a bronze. Her face says it all:

Alex raced through rain, snow and the bitter cold. But her technique was always perfect.
The Closing Ceremonies were a celebration of the success of the previous nine days. This quote from the Closing Ceremony booklet is the pledge we all made to the chant of "Together We Can", the theme of the Winter World Games.

For nine days the world celebrated people who are different, yet people who have the same dreams and visions as the rest of us. It truly was amazing and inspiring. This is The Sorisaem Bell Choir of Uiryeoung Love House, described as Special Artists who performed at the Closing Ceremonies.
