America is proving at the 2008 Olympics that we are the best and that when we pull together we are winners!!!!
I have been so excited watching all of the different contests, but for some reason today watching these girls, I just cried with pride! There was just a certain something about them that drew me right into their excitement and joy.
Don't get me wrong, I have whooped and rooted for Michael Phelps and all the rest, but it was just something about this group effort that touched my heart.
Congratulations America! When we join together, we are truly the greatest country in the world. We may have moments that are less than glorious, but every time that National Anthem plays and those hands go over those hearts, I realize anew how blessed I am to have been born in this country, the land of the free and the home of the brave!
As my heart soars for these young men and women, I do not forget that there are other young men and women fighting so that we might remain the greatest country in the world. My prayers are with each and every soldier for they are ALL gold medal winners!
