  • Olympians give their best, so should we

    It has been a wonderful two weeks for the world as the Summer Olympics have been on but what is really impressive is the 1,000 Gold Medals won by USA in Olympic history. 

    I have enjoyed most of the sports and have cheered on the Red, White and Blue whenever I watched. I am very proud to be an American and on top of that a Christian American.
