Imagine, we are invited for 40 years circle of travel

While revising their understanding of music in different languages the participants of Music Parallels Toastmasters meeting started placing under a doubt the use of singing at sports events as peacemaking tool and sports competitions themselves as a way to pacify opposing parties.

The old Greek idea of arranging Olympic games to stop wars, re-established later by Pierre de Coubertin, happened to fall under revision.

Luckily, among the audience there were some followers of Hellenistic principle of having body culture as a part of education and life style.

Yuriy Stetsenko, a lawyer, demonstrated his jiu jitsu kimono and narrated about his experience of using his jiu jitsu training to escape from sometimes tense everyday reality and “clean the brain” (don’t be afraid, Yuriy meant his brain, and cleaning it of frustrations encountered in court rooms, not other person’s brain full of bright thoughts and good intentions J ).

Yuriy’s energizing  music phrase “We are the champions, my friend!”, though, was softened by Olga Sipakova singing several lines from Halleluiah by  Leonard Coen, a song performed at Winter Olimpics 2010.

 Still, there wasn’t ardent argument about the idea that both music and sports in every culture  are good ways to recreate human’s physical and emotional powers.

These physical and emotional powers we need as we go through the circles of life, daily, weekly, monthly, yearly.

Imaging now, that here. in this country we are invited for 40 years circle of travel to withstand all the challenges on the way, being able to get rid of some old burdens and gain new energy and values.

PS – type “Pierre de Coubertin” in search machine and find a citation:

«Il y a dans les moeurs, comme dans l’histoire, des conquêtes imprévues.  »

У моральності, так же як і в історії іноді відбуваються несподівані завоювання.
