We have watched it all week at the Olympics. We have seen how dedicated determination takes one from goal to achievement. We have witnessed the sheer will to win and to come out on the other side with determined victory. It is a lesson for us all.

Those of us who are older now and whose health has begun to discourage us need the lesson of the Olympians, no matter their age. The point is not age, the point is in dedicated determination. The will to overcome, to succeed, to push the limits as far as they need be and can be pushed. Giving up is not an option. Deciding and doing are disciplines of one who knows that demonstrating to oneself and to others that you can do it is.
