A friend on Facebook posts an interesting question/quandary* about what they feel regarding the Sochi Olympics:
With a month to #Sochi I feel very torn about it. I love the spirit of the Olympics (despite the IOC) and athletes give up a childhood to participate for the love of sport. Then there’s Russia and people being forced to give up who they are.
If the US hadn’t boycotted a political system in 1980 I wonder if more would be done now.
I can’t say I don’t feel the same way. Personally, I stated awhile ago that I leaned towards boycott. Now I’m just in the same limbo-land. The opening ceremonies will be the most interesting part of these whole Games, I think.. to see if any of the athletes make a defying statement.
