"Steady ... steady," I thought to myself as the Olympic flame was passed on to my torch. So much had happened to bring this tiny flame into my shaking hands. Not only had countless people handed it from one to another so that it could arrive at me now, the entire world had to overcome seemingly impossible challenges to make these games happen.
As I carefully ascended the stairs to light the Olympic caldron, I could feel the entire world's eyes on me as I lit the flame that would lighten everyone's hearts. Though these games had to be held without spectators, I knew everyone was watching.
