NICHE (n.) –
NICHE will be my word of the year for 2018, as in if you were just going “dabble” in something, find or make your NICHE & excel to stand out.
Wouldn’t that be the ultimate Olympics story? If somehow between now and then, North and South Korea could get their act together, likely with help with other nations, to be unified. That way, there wouldn’t be a spectre of a North Korea over the Olympics all the time.
Of course, lots of people would say that’s a ridiculous dream, but how many Olympic dreams are ridiculous when they begin? If there’s one the thing Olympics should do, it should encourage you to dream bigger. If you can’t imagine something happening, then get a bigger imagination.
There’ll also be those who say Korean unification isn’t an Olympic dream, but dreams to me, are dreams. We’ve seen more remarkable change in our life time with the reunification of Germany, disbanding of others for independence where there should be with people of their own identities.
So why not a Winter Olympics in 2018 in one unified Korea?
In Pyeongchang, Korea.
