Now we must pick up and move on in life after two wonderful weeks of entertainment by the best athletes in the world. What does that mean? I believe that we are going to move forward as a prouder nation. Respecting each other from coast to coast ,east to west ,north to south.. As I watched the closing ceremonies and watched the flame extinguished I felt I must not let the flame be extinguished for me. I must pick up the torch and carry the spirit of the games in my heart .I challenge you to do the same. Celebrating One United Canada. We must not forget to be proud to be Canadian.
