We are proud !

 

Like everyone over the last week I have been glued to my television watching the Olympics.

 

Finding myself caught up in the emotions and desires.

 

Celebrating the achievements with tears of joy and crying with sadness at the loss of dreams.

 

Yet one thing that has really got to me is the sadness of the British Olympians who haven’t got gold. They seem to think silver and bronze are fails, not good enough.

 

My heart aches and I’m finding myself screaming at the television “we love you”.

 

Everyone of the athletes that have participated in these games should be holding their heads high. Just to qualify for the Olympics means you are amazing, you are awesome.

 

The time, the dedication you have given to your chosen sport makes you a winner in my eyes.

 

For those holding their gold medals in their arms we as a country are so proud of you.

 

For those with silver and bronze you are winners too.

 

And for those who are leaving empty chested just remember we as a country admire and respect you.

 

You ALL did us proud.
