That being said, I was surprised by my level of emotion when Team Great Britain walked out during the opening ceremonies. I am not an expat, not a British subject, I am still an American citizen living here in England. Though, I am incredibly proud of my host country & the talented athletes representing Team GB.
I love this country, and I love these isles.
"I was not born for one corner, the world is my native land."
I am quite proud of my American roots, I am also a proud wanderer. I love this world & I will enjoy every opportunity I have of exploring everything it has to offer.
Good luck to all athletes participating in the London 2012 Games, I know you will do your respective home nation & the world proud!
