Olympic spirit should be our default setting. #OlympicPeace

It is a beautiful thing to see, athletes from all over the world joining together for a week of competition, sportsmanship, and peace. The Olympics represents the unity and camaraderie that we, as residents of Planet Earth, can share. Nations long at war, put aside their differences for a time, in favor of fairness and athletic achievement. https://www.olympic.org/peace/#/

This way of treating our fellow human beings, does not have to be a one week phenomenon, only possible every two or four years. We must attempt to seek common ground and shared goals on a daily basis. Athletes and Artists have long led the way in unifying our world. We can live in a world of peace and even use our pain and pride and violent instincts to bring joy instead of more suffering. So, create, compete, and coexist. We are more than just the sum of our parts.
