Everywhere I went in Dawson Creek on Friday, Feb 11, the main talk was about the Olympic Games
and especially the Opening Ceremonies.
People here in the Peace River Country have a special appreciation for the importance of winter. We live in a winter wonderland ourselves.
I heard more than a few chuckles about our abundance of snow this year and willingness to donate some to the Olympic venues.
• We watched in respect
as the Georgian athlete who lost his life was paid tribute by the whole world
• We watched with high regard
as our First Nations Peoples opened the ceremonies and welcomed the world
• We watched in excitement
as we were introduced to the best athletes on the planet
• We watched in great pride
as our Canadian athletes made their entrance into the stadium
• We watched in delight
as we were dazzled by an amazing show of Canadian Talent and Spirit
• We watched in reverence
as the Olympic Torches were carried and lit by Canada's Favorite Athletes
• We watched in anticipation
for the coming days!Way to Go Vancouver! We Love You Canada! Welcome World!
This Mile O Citizen will certainly be following the 2010 Winter Olympics! Anyone want some snow?
