Today marks the beginning of the 2008 Olympics and I'm still unsure if I will watch or not.
I LOVE THE OLYMPICS!!
The recent Chinese violence in Tibet, plus the decades long invasion and cruelty there, are bad enough.
But I heard two days ago that China revoked U.S. Olympian Joey Cheek's visa - without explanation - so he's not allowed to participate. Wha????
I also heard that China dislocated a million people by razing their homes in order to build some of the Olympic buildings. Again, wha??
There's more, of course. Much more. I'm not keeping up on it very well.
Still, I'm having a hard time resolving this issue.
Do I support the Olympians or do I protest China?
Is there a third option?
I still don't know whether I will watch tonight or not. I'm leaning toward yes, but there is guilt.
What to do, what to do...
