Sochi Olympics 2014: We Are All Athletes

Washington, DC
January 31, 2014


We may not look the same or dress the same, we may live in different places and lead different lives, but we are all athletes.
We are all persistent, relentless, and stubborn.
We love speed.
We aim for perfection.
We work through pain.
We don’t let people tell us who we are or who we should be.
We don’t give up when things get tough.
We don’t take no for an answer.
We all strive.
We all struggle.
We all persevere.
We all support each other.
Our lives may differ, but we are all dreamers, competitors, champions, teammates.
We are all athletes!
