No matter what one does, it is very hard in our current world to maintain focus. I just watched Michael Phelps win his first gold medal.
We don’t all win gold medals in life and don’t all come from perfect families.
Michael Phelps came from a home with a single, divorced mom — who broke into tears when he won his first medal in these games and his ninth career gold.
He’s a great inspiration. . .but I think the fact that he wore TWO swimming caps while the Hungarian wore none has some deeper meaning that I’m going to ponder.
Congratulations Michael. . .seriously. Fantastic.
