I was very fortunate to be able to purchase tickets for the opening ceremony of the 2010 Vancouver Paralympic games. It was a fabulous evening celebrating the abilities and accomplishments of these incredible athletes. The evening was filled with music, colour and dance. The stars of the show were the hundreds of children who danced for hours, the dj's who pumped up the audience so they too danced all evening, and of course the athletes themselves.
Vancouver is very fortunate to be hosting this once-in-a-life-time event. I hope you will take this opportunity to get out to one of the venues and see first hand the courage, commitment and skill of these athletes. The tickets are very reasonably priced and there are still some available. And if you are an arm-chair spectator then catch some of the action on CTV (channel 9 in Vancouver) or on your computer.
