Every time the Olympics come around, I am mesmerized by the dedication, athleticism, and perseverance demonstrated by all of the athletes. Their stories are diverse, and their accomplishments are tremendous. I hope you are enjoying their stories and the competitiveness of each of the events. I find myself asking questions like - "what event occurred in this person's life that would cause them to get on a sled and go 90 miles an hour down the nearest hill? How does one get into something of this nature?" It is perplexing, but this life provides unique opportunities to us all.
