The Olympics were created to bring countries together with camaraderie and in good sport many years ago as evidenced by the website http://www.olympic.org/ancient-olympic-games with religious significance in mind.
“According to historical records, the first ancient Olympic Games can be traced back to 776 BC. They were dedicated to the Olympian gods and were staged on the ancient plains of Olympia. They continued for nearly 12 centuries, until Emperor Theodosius decreed in 393 A.D. that all such “pagan cults” be banned.”
Countries around the world have always tried to show everyone coming to their country a down-home atmosphere except for a few times. But mostly it allows people to compete and to realize the similarities and the cultural diversity between others. This, to my psychic mind, is a good thing.
The times that the Olympics were chosen to become a political statement by terrorists made those who were watching cringe, especially if they weren’t part of the radical group causing the atrocities. And that’s what’s happening now. This should be a great time for all involved. Instead it’s marred with politics and undeniable sorrow.
Obviously the Russian people want to host the Sochi Olympics in grand style and they seem to be creating that atmosphere but there are some at unrest who would signify the very terror that could turn all against their agenda. This isn’t the time or the place to get their point across. And I’m going to hope that the bloodshed that comes from this doesn’t disgrace the spirit of the Olympics.
Though you think because the world is watching they’ll turn to your side, those you may have had on your side will be thoroughly disgusted with what you’ve done. Please stay away from the southeast side of the Sochi Olympic Stadium and keep everyone safe.
My prayer is that I’m wrong.
