On the occasion of the 2012 Olympic opening ceremony...
After my "moment to shine" experience just a few weeks ago, I had the privilege to be present at the Olympic Stadium on July 27.That day something special was in the air. The XXX. Olympiad, the 2012 summer Olympic Games Grand opening was a wonderful and magical evening. My husband and I are celebrating our 10th years wedding anniversary this summer so it was an immediate decision a few months ago to organise and buy tickets to the most wonderful show on Earth.
The evening organised by Lord Coe was expected to be something extraordinary. Having Danny Boyle as director did guarantee success. The event turned out to be more than a success it became a legend. The opening of the 3rd London Olympics Games (1908, 1948, 2012) was magical. A wonderful evening to be remembered for a long time. At 9:00 pm sharp (BST) the world's eye were set on the Elisabeth II Stadium in East London. Over one billion people were glued to their chairs and sofas at home and there were thousands of people at the event watching it live. I happened to be one of the lucky ones cherishing this memory of being present.
What was it like to be an arm’s length from this event? It made me proud to be one of the Olympic Torch Bearers who carried the flame. It gave me a real inspiration to continue to introduce the charity running model to Hungary, and I understood perfectly the importance of being an athlete.
The event was a great inspiration for generations. It showed the world how to be proud of being British and last but not least taught us all that no matter what nationality we are, we should treasure our history, work on our present and believe in the future generation.Just after midnight young athletes lit the cauldron and the Olympic Flame reached its position shining upon the games in the middle of the stadium, and my heart was full of joy and hope. Faith was restored in humanity, the need was there for peace, the hearts were beating in the same rhythm - we believe in sport, we believe in love. The flame of hope should be shining on all of us, the warmth of it should be deeply touching all hearts, old and young, healthy and sick, able and disabled, back or white. We shall all unite to make this world a better place for all of us.
We depend on voluntary funding - any small amount - or kind support is highly appreciated. It takes so little to do so much...
