Olympic musings

Saturday, August 09, 2008

Last night, as I was watching that touching and beautiful opening ceremony, I started to wonder. Why is it that the only thing that can bring the entire world together is a sporting event?

I mean, doesn't it seem that there are so many more important things that could bring the world together in a united fashion? There were more than 80 heads of state in Beijing last night... and almost every country in the world was represented.

Think what we could do if everyone joined together for something a little more meaningful than a volleyball game.

    I guess it's better than nothing...?

    Actually, sometimes musical events have a way of pulling people together. Remember "We Are The World"...? Some of the other major fund-raising mega-superstar concerts of our past? Music has tremendous potential to pull people together.
