Our Closest Friends The Canadians
We are hearing a lot lately about Canada and in particular the beautiful area of Vancouver. Where for these few weeks all nations of the world converged to celebrate and partake in the 2010 Winter Olympics.
If only the world could be so friendly, so caring and so humble, each and every day. As we are during every Olympic, both Summer and Winter. It takes amateur sportsmen, every four years to remind the worlds citizens that we are all one, regardless of origin, creed or race.
But this post is not about the grandeur of the Olympic Games, but it is to pay tribute and to say thank you to our close neighbors to the north. With most of the world in turmoil, where borders define differences between two societies. We as Americans have been blessed with a nation of people, who since the beginning of both our great constitutions, have been there for us and we for them.
Today I would like to thank this peaceful giant and gracious neighbor. And to remind us all, how very lucky we are to share a border with Canada and to be proud to call them our friends, as well as neighbors.
Tom Brokaw helped remind me of this, in a small piece he did while I watched the beginning of these great games of this Winter Olympics. I would like to share it with you. It originally aired on Feb 14th, Valentines Day.
