The Olympics

Tonight marks the beginning of the 2012 London Olympics. Watching some preview coverage, I thought about why the Olympics are so popular. I can’t think of one person who hates the Olympics as a whole.

When I thought about why, I was struck by the enormity of it. The Olympics are the only event where the entire human race gathers to celebrate humanity and the amazing heights that people can achieve. No other event unites the entire world in celebration like the Olympics.

There will be amazing feats and crazy records broken. There will be failure and success, triumph and defeat. And throughout it all, the common theme is humanity.

Enjoy these Olympics as a celebration of the human race and be amazed at the things we are capable of.
