From 12th to 28th February, the 2010 Winter Olympic Games are being held in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. Since I have been a fan of the Olympic Games for as long as I can remember, I am paying here a tribute to the Olympism. All the best to Vancouver during the Games and to the athletes! Let’s always remember the importance and the spirit of the Olympics.
Are there some similarities among the meaning of the Olympics and the meaning of penpalling? In my opinion there are many. Both of them show to be tolerant, respectful, understanding and supportive to each other. They both work on showing us to accept other cultures, countries and customs the way they are. Isn’t it the most important to build a World where solidarity, friendship and unity lead us in the same direction to achieve worlwide peace?
