Are you enjoying the Olympics as much as we are?! I forget how caught up I get into it.
I have been struck more than ever by how diverse and how wealthy we really are. We are dominating in so many sports, and in many cases it is a direct result of our inclusion of immigrants from around the world.
Shawn Johnson’s coach is from China
Nastia Luikin’s parents were both from Russia
Lopez Lomong is from the Sudan (and carried the American flag in the opening ceremonies)
I could go on and on.
Have you also noticed that many of the best sprinters and swimmers from other countries actually train in the United States?
If you are opposed to immigration, be sure to at least let us import the best talent from around the world in time for London in 2012! 🙂
