In Memory of Nodar Kumaritashvili

I think the picture above says it all. My condolences to the family, friends and other loved ones of Nodar Kumaritashvili. Nodar was struck down in his prime, but he died doing what he loved. The hearts of my family bleed for you and your loss. Now that the Olympics are over and Nodar has been laid to rest, I have a bone to pick with the IOC. The IOC released a cold and indifferent statement about the accident. How dare you fuzzy-headed, tree-hugging, hateful assholes blame his death completely on pilot error. You should all be ashamed of yourselves. The fact that you modified the track puts the lie to your assertions that the track is completely safe. You must think the world's population is stupid and can not discern a lie. Nodar Kumaritashvili's death is a tragedy, however, that your extreme hubris has been exposed for all the world to see, will hopefully be eye opening. In the future, this will color the perceptions of the world on your every word. Here is a great opinion piece, and it is a shame that the athletes did not unite to bring you to your knees.

Thank you for the very right comment, strong words but very-very true! While everyone around blubbing how wonderful this doomed olympic was, thank God there are some people who realise thre were so much lies, indefference, arrogance, about this "event"! None of the olympic gold worth human life!

You are welcome. I have many strong words that I wish I could say to the IOC directly. I truly wish they had been more responsible with their statements and investigation rather than chasing ratings. Hopefully those high ratings sooth their guilty consciences.
