And so, as a gift before I fly off to Vancouver for 6 weeks, I have put together a little presentation for my students -- to explain what My Olympic Journey means to me, and to try to plant seeds of hope and inspiration to believe in and achieve in the power of their dreams.
My little presentation goes like this:
PART A - The Seeds of a Dream . . .
(The Story of My Dream. I'll eventually post this so you can read it.)
PART B - What IS the Olympic Dream?
** "Dreams are Whispers"... an inspirational film clip from SimpleTruths.com
** A music video of LeAnn Rymes song "Light the Fire Within" created by Dark Moon Studios
** Canada's Celine Dion singing "The Power of the Dream", with the song's Canadian composer, David Foster, on piano at the Atlanta Opening Ceremonies in 1996.
** The Children of Atlanta sing "The Power of the Dream" at the Atlanta Closing Ceremonies.
I hope you'll have a moment to watch and enjoy!
