Remember my Olympic Fever post? Tonight our family fell in love with the Olympics for another reason, South Africa’s Pistorius.
A double amputee, Oscar is breaking down Olympic barriers. He is an example, a lesson for us all. As he said, “A loser isn’t the person that gets involved and comes last, but it’s the person that doesn’t get involved in the first place. It’s a mentality we’ve always had. When you start something, you do it properly. The passion you start something with, you finish it off with.”
That is an athlete worth cheering for, supporting, and honoring. The Olympics are about so much more than just winning, it is about the journey to get there, the fight to compete. Oscar Pistorius, you have a family of cheerleaders in our household.
