Consider This: The Spirit of America

MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - Our country is struggling to make sense of the killings in Aurora, Colorado. It's hard to comprehend how a person could commit such a violent crime and kill so many people.

Consider This: When something like this happens it makes you question the direction of our country. And although it can't erase the pain, The Olympics give us reason to cheer for something good across America.

There will be great stories about athletes overcoming significant odds to reach their goals and dreams. And we can take pride in their victories when they are awarded their medals as the national anthem plays and the American flag is raised.

What happened in Aurora was tragic, but maybe The Olympics can give us reason to remember that America is still the greatest country in the world.
