We are settling down after the excitement of the last 2 weeks and the awesome event that was the Olympic games an event that has been going on for centuries in the same way but with obvious changes such as athletes are paid for their efforts apart from boxers who are still amateurs I Just know I would not want a fight with not even a toy fight )
The biggest change even in the last 4 years is how we communicate with each other nearly everything on our lives is commented on and I am so glad I am not a so-called celebrity where you can’t say or do anything without it being world wide news , cant even fall over in peace !
I must admit I was not really an avid fan of the Olympics although I went to Wales and saw the olympic torch run through the village and it really did bring the community together as the whole village seemed to come out although the weather may have had something to do with it but at the same time their was something annoying about the constant countdown to this event for like the last seven years just like christmas think everyone knew it was happening ! we really did not need the constant reminders !
I settled down to the opening ceremony not to sure what to expect I vaguely know Frank Cottrill Boyce who had quite a large input but little mention on the night which was A SMITE ANNOYING . Hindsight is a wonderful thing and if I possessed that gift d I would have spent more time taking the show in instead of twittering on about it and in the process missing what was going on !
We will never go back in time so the time to record all our thoughts and feeling is here to stay social media accounts have bought people’s general thoughts to life and within reason people can say what they like although at times is a bit monotonous all saying yey USAIN BOLT is the greatest , maybe only time will tell . I get most of my news of world events from twitter not like what seems yeons ago the set news times of the day
I felt as a whole it bought the country of UK together in deep dismal times but am a realist , couple of weeks down the line is fast fading from my memory box one thing social networking should be proud is we can all share our thoughts if we wish and make communication easier for people like myself on the autism spectrum!asis alot easier for us to talk about our thoughts and feeling s maybe than in real life where we get weird looks !!dont get any looks off social media yey!!
I did not stay in hooked to the screen but watched the different sports with interest and found my self getting very excited with variou events like the Rowng all interest will fade away til 2016 when we will do it all again but being in BRAZIL WONT HAVE QUITE the same feeling of being on in your backyard which wasa rarther long way from Liverpool but still !
We will have to wait and see if their is a legacy of these games only time will tell and we do need investment I am not holding my breath concerning my 12 yearold neice who wanted to be a swimmer rower Gymnastic , the list goes on but as I said ” alot of work goes into this quite sure they did not lie in bed til midday
The olympic games brought people from all over the world showing how we can all get on with a bit of effort some people may not be into sport but even they can see sport can do great things given the right support and encourgement
