Do the Olympics Still Matter?

Athletes representing 97 nations will participate in the Opening Ceremony of the XXI Winter Olympic Games in Vancouver tonight.

Turn on your TV.



And remember that the games represent so much more than the sports.

Remember that the Olympic rings, representing colors from every nation's flag, are interlocked and interdependent.

In today's world, the Olympics remind us that no one country can stand alone.

So just for tonight, cheer for the United States and the other 96 countries, congregating peacefully with common goals under common rules, to show us that just maybe we all can get along and work towards a common good for all.

And then tomorrow? Let the games begin!
