True North Favourite: With Glowing Hearts

with glowing hearts book cover

With Glowing Hearts by Vancouver Organizing Committee for the 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games

It's not every person that almost gets run over by Wayne Gretzky's RCMP motorcade as The Great One is en route to light the outdoor Olympic cauldron. But, that's my claim to fame! I was fortunate enough to attend the Vancouver 2010 Olympics and With Glowing Hearts and other books like it bring me right back to February 2010. The crowds, the atmosphere, the Canadian pride! These are things I'll never forget! Being lucky enough to attend two of Canada's hockey games was a dream come true. My brother and I saw our women's team play Switzerland and our men's team take on Norway. We spent an incredible week in Vancouver and soaked up every moment of this once-in-a-lifetime experience. As for Gretzky and the exciteable RCMP officer during the finale of the Opening Ceremony: no hard feelings.
