Olympic Flame

Whatever you think about the Olympics, it’s a great spectacle and it brings people together.

In the greater scheme of things, it isn’t important. Today the news is of a terrible massacre of civilians and children in Syria. Go and read about that, please, after you’ve read this, or I will feel guilty.

But in my little world today, the Olympic flame passed close to my house and I decided I would go and see it. Hundreds of people lined the streets. Traffic was halted but I saw no bad feeling or anger. Families were out together. There was cheering and clapping. The atmosphere was friendly, there were lots of smiles and laughter.

Is there anything wrong with that?
