On July 23rd 2021, the Tokyo Olympics 2020 opening ceremony took place. I am always inspired with the world-wide parade of nations, especially as we are only too often hearing of devastations that are affecting western, eastern and all hemispheres of the Globe. The happiness and anticipation of the athletes as they parade is inspirational to see. Even amidst the crisis that take place. I always love to see the human artistry of performance, which is a lovely inclusion of the arts within the Olympic Opening Ceremonies. It is with these thoughts that I would like to wish all the teams and individuals who are representing their nations all the best of luck. I wish that the participation and the Olympic experience is of value as much as is winning! Thank you Tokyo! Congratulations for welcoming the World!!!
The following images are of a simple arts and crafts design that I created that says Welcome in the Japanese language, to especially to appreciate the nation Tokyo, Japan, also with an origami paper peace dove, to emphasize the message of Olympic Peace during the Olympic Games. Of-course this message can also be extended beyond this time-frame! I have also included the pictograph of the word Welcome in world languages for inclusion and to celebrate the happiness I felt during the Olympic Parade in Tokyo 2020!
Congratulations to all who made it to Tokyo, good luck and all the best!!!!!
With Love & Kindness! 🇺🇸
