XXI Olympics Closing Ceremony
Congratulations neighbor for a job well done.
You welcomed the world with your open arms.
It sent chills down my spine as I watched the closing ceremonies you produced.
It was a thrill to see the pride in your country by the audience. The energy in the stadium was electric - among both the spectators and the athletes.
Your closing ceremony was to me what the Olympics is all about.
The entrance of the athletes from the various countries made me smile, cry and have pride in the athletes.
What fresh faced happy athletes who we can hold up as role models for our youth.
From Alexandre Bilodeau first gold medal for your country, I cheered for your athletes along with those from the United States.
You thrilled us as you defeated us in hockey. What a game!
You were the ultimate host to the world.
I will fondly remember this Olympics for the rest of my life.
O Canada I salute you and I am glad you are our neighbor.
