CARIFIN 2017 !!!!!!! I’M SUPEREXCITED !!!!!!!!!!!
“Non nobis solum sed omnibus”: “Not for ourselves only but for others”
Greetings to you all Ms. Sade Jones here reporting live from the Volunteer Front of CARIFIN GAMES 2017. As the CARIFIN 2016 Spirit of The Games Winner, it brings me no greater joy than to be on the serving end of the spectrum this year. It was a truly humbling experience last year competing and being victorious in the face of personal adversity, the games unearthed a level of strength and endurance that seemingly lay dormant, a sleeping giant as it were.
Alas! My letter to you comes on the cusp of this great tournament. I implore you my Gladiators, as in days of old in the great Colosseum in Rome that this year revives the Spirit of a Golden Era long forgotten. An era marked by fierce competition, passion for sport, chivalry, valor and above all honor….in other words let’s get out there and have some Fun!!! My hope for you is simply this: that you be transformed, that you grow, that you forge long lasting bonds of brotherhood not so easily broken by the mere conclusion of these games. Beloved in closing, in the great words of one of my philosophical counterparts LET THE GAMES BEGIN…………
