More than 1000 (!) NCAA student-athletes

That global stat tells us something very positive about the state of the world
-- regardless of the Olympic nay-sayers.

The Olympic spirit, as envisioned by the Ancient Greeks,
is alive and well as a positive example
of the global cooperation and work
that is possible among humankind.

It urges us all,
and our planet's young generations especially,
to forge onward toward the creation of a better and more peaceful world.

Or, as the recently passed Prince Philip was quoted to say
as a general wisdom applicable to everyone....
Don't drop your countenance....
"Get on with it" and do your job.
