Aly Raisman!

I haven't been watching the Olympics this year.  For some reason I just couldn't get into it.

But today I am bursting with pride.  A young woman got up on the world's stage, proclaimed who she is, and what she values:

"I am American, I am Jewish, and I honor the Munich 11."

She won a gold metal for her floor routine, done to "Hava Nagilah".  She accepted her medal to "The Star Spangled Banner".

And then she did what the IOC refused to do.  And that's more important than  that medal.
