…let the Games begin!…

cdnflagLet the Olympic Games begin!!

Canadian Olympic team – with glowing hearts we see thee rise!

Go for the gold! All good wishes!

Do you suffer from Olympic fatigue? At least one commentator suggests the ceremonious event is losing its lustre amid “an unseemly and escalating miasma of money and politics, of terrorism and doping, of scandal and semantics.”

Cheers to the training & dedication of athletes & the chasing of a dream!
Cheers to safety, smiles & success!
Cheers to many nations gathered together in one place championing sister/brotherhood.
Cheers to let us be one in Olympic spirit!
As Canadians, from far and wide–we stand on guard and cheer for thee!

” O Canada! in praise of thee we sing;
From echoing hills our anthems proudly ring.
With fertile plains and mountains grand
With lakes and rivers clear,
Eternal beauty, thos dost stand
Throughout the changing year.
Creator of all! We now implore
Bless our dear land this day and evermore,
Bless our dear land this day and evermore.”
