It feels good to let your heart show
2010 Winter Olympics Montage - Stephen Brunt Video Essay
I cannot watch this video without getting goosebumps...okay I will be honest watching it brings tears to my eyes. It is the PERFECT description of how it felt to be Canadian during the Olympics in Vancouver. I watched the opening ceremonies in Asia with the most recent Ex, my bestie Taylor and my brother. We ate breakfast and watched it (with us being 12 hours ahead). I remember it like yesterday standing there being AMAZED at what was going on in Vancouver. All the way in Asia feeling the trepidation those first few days of the Olympics and the gradual build of the Games. Watching closing ceremonies as it wrapped up and even though we didn't win the most medals, we totally one the most GOLD medals (the most in all history of the games I think). I am proud. In reality there are a lot worse places to be living in the world. I should count my blessings that I live in such a great country that has beautiful people with big hearts. I think the Canadian compassion and character is distinguishable in a great way. There is a reason people from other countries sew my country's flag on their backpacks.
