A prideful moment
Monday night the Olympic Torch was carried into the city amongst cheers whistles and thunderous applause. I was one of the thousands who braved the cold to watch as our own rendition of the Olympic cauldron was lit by the Torch carrier. The three-time Olympian and graduate of North Park Collegiate, Kevin Sullivan carried the Olympic torch the final leg of its journey through Brantford to light up the Olympic cauldron. It really was an awesome sight to watch as he ran up the steps stood facing us all, smiled and then lit the cauldron with the torch. As Oh Canada was played every person as far as I could see, and yes including myself sang along proudly. I guess it was just one of those moments in a person’s time when they can honestly feel the pride of our country.
