Opening of the Olyimpics, thoughts

Well I’m watching the opening ceremony of the Olympic Winter games, 2010 Vancouver.

Tragically, one of the athletes will not be able to participate because he was killed this morning in a practice luge run… very difficult to watch what happened to 21 year old Nodar Kumaritashvili from the county Georgia. He was going so fast before he crashed that he didn’t have time to think.  This would have been his first Olympics too. Very sad… life is fragile. Eternal rest grant unto him O Lord… may he rest in peace.  Let us pray for the safety of all athletes.

Incidentally,  did anyone catch the premiere of the “We are the World” video tonight? It can be viewed here:
