It’s was tough to watch Chicago lose their bid for the Olympics, but at the same time, you have to feel joy for Brazil. They will be the host country for the first time and for the first time on their continent. It’s another mark of ascendancy into the upper echelon of countries that dominate the world today. It all sounds good, but it won’t be easy. Crime and poverty are still rampant and it will take all of their skill and resources to pull this off. I wish them the best of Luck!
Brazil has been anointed the host
Of the Olympics, now they can boast
A continental first
That will slake a thirst,
As they raise up their glasses to toast.
