In many ways the image belows identifies some of what I love about Australia. The picture shows the Prime Minister, Kevin Rudd, sharing the spotlight with the Leader of The Opposition welcoming home our champions from the Olympic Games.
No partisan politics, no trying to score points off each other… just there on our behalf to let our people know we recognise them for their efforts. Bloody magic I call it… tho some of me has the idea our Kev really just wanted a chance to kiss Stephanie Rice!!
Some things are above politics… most of the athletes for starters!
Good onya guys you came out punching way above your weight. There’s nothing more anyone could have or would have expected from you than your best, and that what we got. Here’s looking forward to the 2012 London Olympics! 😀
