Olympic Sized Trouble 2012London
When we think of the Olympics we imagine many people, people from every country just about on earth. We try to imagine what it might take to be an elite athlete like an Olympian.
One of the many things we do not imagine is discrimination on any level to these fine athletes. And, if any does exist I am not aware of that. However…
With many governmental agencies assigned the task of making sure global events or games that take place in the countries these agencies reside, they are to insure many things take place to keep the events of this type running as smooth as possible.
In 2012 we will see another awesome Olympic Games event here in the USA, and the rest of the world for as far as I am aware. Then comes the next Olympics, or Equal Olympics.
The word “Para” used in the Paralympic Games does not mean ‘Paralyzed’ ‘Paraplegic’ or anything else to do with being disabled. Para means ‘EQUAL to’, ‘Same as’, and not the last meaning ‘side by side’. We should all be able to realize that these two global events represent the BEST athletes within the sports they are involved. Somehow, while the rest of the world is accepting the Paralympics with wide open arms… One or more locations are actually being prevented on purpose from being able to do the same things.
When I founded the effort AbiliTV nearly six years ago now. My idea was go to the sponsors of companies that controlled the media we watch. You might think we have tried to get these doors open, done studies, and more over twenty years of effort and still nothing. I would like to introduce the concept of outside the box, and adaptive thinking. I even had to shift gears, and redirect my prime focus. As what I am about to share might surprise some of you, like it shocked me.
Let’s just put this on the “official” record as me the founder of AbiliTV making the statement: While this effort does have heart, and tons of determination, and drive to make this work. The currently small group of people interested in this effort means we are like the little engine that could. The effort may not matter to anyone else on earth, and this is fine with us.
Last year in 2010 one of the viewers of my AbiliTV broadcast online told me of a person who ran or owned a local cable access channel near him, and that he will tell him about this little effort.
