The practice of sport is a human right.

Every individual must have the possibility of practising sport, without discrimination of any kind and in the Olympic spirit, which requires mutual understanding with a spirit of friendship, solidarity and fair play.

The Olympic Charter

If you look at this link you will see that the IOC is obliged to  act against any form of discrimination affecting the Olympic Movement.

So here is a bit of a curve ball, yet I was thrown a curve ball, I was moved, energized and felt compelled to share and so I did.

I needed to speak to humanity, responsibility, self worth, responsibility, motivation and principle.

So I encourage you to take a listen, chime in, or don’t; either is cool.

I chose this music because of the significance to me; firstly K.D. Lang is a fellow Albertan, a rural Albertan, a lesbian, a singer, a performer and so proud to be Canadian and an Albertan, even when she was shunned.

I also chose this song because K.D. was invited to perform at the Opening Ceremonies for the Vancouver Winter Olympics, and I have never seen such a raw, honest, girthy performance from any other entertainer.  Plus, such an overwhelming warm response.  Check out her performance here.

That night she say a song written by a Canadian, Leonard Cohen, sung by many, a story travelled through time and she united the world for those few moments.

K.D. Lang brought humanity together.  For those moments, if you were anything of a human being, you were moved, you were charged, your were motivated and you were proud to be alive.

Engage.

A special thanks to K.D. even though she doesn’t know I snagged the vocals from YouTube and yes I bough the disc, Hymns from the 49th Parallel is amazing.

I also want to acknowledge Big Fatty and Auntie Vera for giving me the kick in the ass to realise that “yes I get to say what I need to say”. I love you both.

Thanks for reading, thanks for listening. You all rock!

Sorry, there are no polls available at the moment.
