Olympic Torch

Yesterday evening, I watched -- along with thousands of other people lining Yonge St. -- the Olympic torch bearer jog along surrounded by trucks, music, police on bicycles and as well as in squad cars, to the cheers and roars of the crowd. It was a fantastic experience, one I would not have missed for the world. There was a very special feeling in the air, of huge support for our athletes as well as national pride. It was quite emotional, and once again I gave thanks for being able to live in such a great country. We may be small, we may be quiet, but in the main we have it really really good!
