Tonight many millions of people will watch the Opening Ceremony of the London 2012 Olympic Games. Tonight, once again the Olympic spirit will enter the houses of people from Afghanistan, Armenia, Australia, Ecuador, Spain, Italy, UK, the USA, Mexico, Burundi or Germany.
From this blog I would like to ask all of you to listen carefully the Hymn of the Olympic Games. Probably the only music composition in the world that unites under one tune so many nationalities for a common cause. Spyridon Samaras the composer and Kostis Palamas lyrics two universal Greeks wrote the Olympic Hymn thinking that this music will set one solid foundation for international peace and cooperation.
This blog is not political, this blog is critical with many things that happen in Greece and Cyprus. But today Tourism is All of Us declares Olympic Truce and invites all of us to do the same.
Last but not least. I invite all who cannot be in an Olympic Stadium to watch the games to come to the motherland of the Olympic Games and the Olympic Spirit, come to Greece, and watch the Games relaxing on an OlympicBeach. Enjoy !!
