Olympic Games Opening Ceremony Part 2

As the Chinese veterans parade the Olympic flag around the Bird's Nest Stadium, I reflect on how many charming traditions have grown up around the Olympiads. The parade of all the athletes may be interminable for many viewers but no-one is obliged to watch it and it is hugely rewarding for the participants. The flag itself is a powerful symbol and I am warmed by the celebration of past athletes inherent in its parading by retired athletes. The public oaths reaffirm the fundamental values of the Games; an optimistic survival for more than a century.
