Chuk and I have been watching the Olympics every night. We have a little American flag on our coffee table. We cheer "USA USA" just before an American competes and then high-five when he or she has finished, regardless of outcome.
Yesterday was a good day to be an American. I'm inspired as I watch these athletes who have devoted their whole lives to fulfilling their dreams achieve them and so proud to know that they represent my country. It feels like it's my victory too.
