The XV Paralympic Games had just gotten underway in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. From 7th to 18th September, the world will get to witness the spirit and tenacity of athletes with disabilities. We are sure to find out many heart-rending stories of their sacrifices and struggles against challenges.
Indeed, the true spirit of both the Olympic and Paralympic Games is not about winning medals or glory for one’s country, but in promoting friendship across nations as well as to unite people in charity, goodwill, and humanity.
We wish all sportsmen and sportswomen participating in the Rio Paralympics all the very best! May they compete safely, fairly, and rejoice in each other’s achievements in being at the Games. “Citius, Altius, Fortius, et virtute”.
