I Sit In America

And I cheer for the Americans.  Of course I want my team to win.

But I watch…

And it happens every time.

I find myself cheering for the great performance.

Bemoaning the falls and slips.

No matter the country.

And I love the athletes-

Who cheer the great performers.

Regardless of the country.

The human beings who make up the athletes.

Who hug their competitors.

And appreciate the great efforts.

Even in competition-when there is a winner.   A loser.   There is respect and admiration.

I cheer our world when we come together.

And admire one another.
