On October 24, 2017, a priestess in Greece lit the Olympic torch and the newly aflame Torch began its journey to South Korea for the winter games of 2018. The motto for the Games this year is Let Everyone Shine! The glory of the Olympics is that athletes from every nation remind us that we are global human family and that discipline, practice, and teamwork are rewardable. We marvel at the grace and skill of the athletes as we proudly cheer for them. The dark side of the Olympics is a reminder that competition can become vicious and brutal, breeding corruption; that transparency and fairness can give way to deceit when winning becomes too important. Let us pray for peace during the Games, for a steady focus on appreciating skill and artistry wherever it appears, and for growth in mutual understanding and greater union among countries. This outcome would be a true tribute to the Games worthy of all the hard work and discipline that go into them.
