The Beijing Olympics will be starting this weekend. I'll grudgingly admit that I've even watched a few of the Olympic trials on TV over the past few weeks (I'm a sucker for the diving) and I'm trying to figure out what the draw is.
I think it's a combination of striving for personal excellence, coupled with a sense of community pride, and isn't this what all of our lives are about on a smaller scale?
We all should strive to become better and better in every aspect of our lives and thus bring pride to our communities and on a grander scale, our Jewish nation.
That aside, I'm TOTALLY rooting for the 41 year old mom who's going to show them all a few things at the swimming competitions ;)
