When I’m ninety, i will brag to the world about how I was alive during twenty twelve and how it felt to be there,how excited we felt,how our emotions ran high, the sensational burn of pride running through my icy veins.
I say icy veins because during the years running up to London twenty twelve I was young, foolish and cynical towards what I thought was almost a blaspheme perception of what is actually an amazing city. I was adamant that having the Olympics in London would spoil our ,media and image with false advertisement and iconography.if London was just beautiful buildings with stunning architecture and big red busses full of people drinking tea with their pinkies sticking out and posh upper and middle class people getting in to black taxis going around Westminster, then yes that would’ve been fine. However, thats just two sq miles of an entire city throbbing with multiculturalism and diverse communities. It’s a city where no matter where your from, you can be what ever you want. I thought the Olympics was just some privileged people who were lucky enough to have gone to good schools showing off what they can do.
I was incredibly wrong. Me and my family sat down in from of the tv and watched the the opening ceremony of what was an amazing month In which memories were made.the sense and unity I felt made my heart melt and as the warm liquid spread through my veins causing a torrent of emotions in the room, so of which were joy, pride happiness and hope. Hope that not only London can be a better place, nor the uk. But that the whole world has potential to be a better place. Bucket loads of it.
