I wish for the focus of the Winter Olympics, and Paralympics (3/7/2014) being held in Sochi, Russia to remain on the Olympians and recognition of the intense amount of sacrifice and dedication put forth in order to compete at this level. I hope through the examples, and inspiration they provide that somehow it will encourage the Russian govt to change direction/opinion, and legislation of many disturbing policies that have made headline news over the last few years, and especially most recently. I am not sure if I will be able to watch these games because it makes me sad and angry knowing the reality of what is happening inside and outside of the arenas and village. I wish for peace, no harm to any living creatures there and for all athletes to be allowed to do their best, and shine as bright as they can!
