Well, we did it! We all came together as a nation, and we believed.
The 2010 Olympics are over, and while we wait for the Paralympics games to start we can heave a sigh of relief.
We did it, and we did it well.
We even might have surprised ourselves a bit.
These Olympics have been like a rite of passage for our city, our Country, our people.
We have blossomed, no longer the youngest sibling in the family of the world, almost overnight, we grew up.
Welcome to the world, Canada.
Many thank you’s are owed to the athletes, the volunteers, and the people of Vancouver, you did a great job. And you deserve the praise that the world is giving to you.
And in the end, it is not about how many medals won, or what color they were.
It is about a chance to participate, to taking away a memory, a moment.
One that will last a lifetime.
Let’s remember that.
I know we will.
