Your country is making everyone proud. Be Proud! and be Happy! Look at what you are doing...and know that we rejoice in your achievements of hosting the Olympics! I didn't know of another Forum where I might put this...but all of Australia, and Sydney in particular, should be proud of this year.

Congratulations, our friends, on a job well done! I wish I could be there to enjoy the spectacle of  the Olympics with you!

I'm watching the Opening Ceremonies right now from Sydney. . . what a spectacle!!!  Australia is to be proud. . . I never knew that Australia has only had a National Anthem since 1984, "Advance Australia Fair". . . truly stirring. . .

And what a beautiful city Sydney is. . . makes me wish that I was there. . .

Wonderful and amazing!!!

All you wonderfully Aussies... I salute you - This is truly a great spectacle... We'll be having a special glimpse of your country over the next few days, I hope...

Perhaps you could let us know on this thread who you all are??? I'd love to know which of our poets are fortunate enough to be from Australia... um... or even New Zealand, Severn...

I think it would be great to acknowledge all the countries Passions Poets represent! The Australian Relay Swim Team was superb! Congrats on the Gold Medal...

Now, where in the world are YOU from?
