I love this clip. I have to say, I have never felt this much patriotism in my lifetime. I see more Canadian flags stuck in gardens, hanging in windows, lining driveways, up on the sides of buildings then I have ever seen on any Canada Day. On every side street you drive down they are somewhere. It is a great feeling to have such sense of pride of where you live and where you belong!! I have always appreciated where I live but have not felt this bubbling sense of pride!! Olympic fever has caught on full force in our household and has touched many, many more everywhere we look. The idea of drawing a country and the world together in a peaceful celebration of support has definitley succeeded here. Aside from all of the negativity these games have brought financially and the debt they will leave behind (very bad) I am glad that my children have experienced something so powerful in their country. They are proud Canadians and have been finding every opportunity to wave their Canadian flag, wear their Olympic clothing and cheer on our Canadian Athletes. So aside from everything else at least these games will leave a lot of us with a sense of pride and patriotism that we maybe didn't feel before!
