Feeling inspired by the Commonwealth Games opening ceremony last night, it struck me just how important a role sport plays in all of our lives.
In my last post as editor on Outside & Active, I wanted to share something that I wrote last night after watching the opening ceremony of the Commonwealth Games. I hope that what we have created, what we have shared - the conversations, the podcasts, the articles, the videos have in some way helped inspire you to being more Outside & Active. Enjoy the read.
Until next time, enjoy the outside. Matt
Moved by the stories,
and the people.
Moved by the music,
It hit me
Sport brings people together.
Doesn’t matter if you watch it
You play it
You volunteer it
Doesn’t matter your colour
Or your orientation
Doesn’t matter if you have wheels
Or walk on your own two feet
Sport has the opportunity to heal wounds
To unite under a common goal
Sport has the opportunity to do good
It offers the chance for change
Sport can help us love
can make us laugh
can make us cry
Sport inspires us to overcome adversity
To pursue dreams
And make positive impacts on communities around the world
Sport reminds us of what is possible
The chance for change
