The 2012 Olympic games begin today in London, and while there's always a touch of politics involved, the event still is inspirational as an example of international goodwill among all those who participate. The opening ceremonies have become an extravaganza over the years, but the best part is still the entrance into the stadium of the athletes from around the world, all there to compete against each other in the best tradition of sportsmanship.

This is in response to the article in the Chronicle Independent on Friday, July 20, 2012.
