The gauntlet tossed upon the hardened earth cries aloud saying, "what." Those knights of old, of the grand land of Brittany seek to ponder the what while the when is in the near past seems forgot. The youth ponder the why and stand in lines wondering.
I have a curious streak running through having met you Nj17 a few things you may answer.
How did the Olympics affect the economy of Great Britain? Were there any short term gains and will there be long term revenue? Did it spark new entrepreneur ventures sparking the economy or did it become lack luster having little effect. Was it only a shot in the arm like Penicillin being more preventative than cure?
How did the Olympics affect the social circles? Were new ones created? Were there more protesters than fans? Are there new myths of late regarding heroes and heroines? How has sports in Europe been affected with the new competition of late? Seems Sweden is creating a myth with soccer of late. Will Brittan seek their own to counter? How has the level of competition changed since the Olympics? Can the EUFA compete for the international marketplace for television broadcasting world wide?
What about the little ones too. Do the children have a greater sense of self esteem seeing a future today? Is fitness on the rise in the school systems? Do they have heroic icons now. Did the theme 'Inspire a Generation' make a foothold with the youth seeking betterment and change?
What is happening to the structures created for that event. Are they getting dusty or are they thriving centers now with the advent of change. What is Brittan doing with them now? Are they fuel for tourism and fostering more visitors from aboard. Has the tourist industry maintained since the event?
I would rather read about some of these by hubpages authors.
