Two Koreas, one flag in ceremonies

\Two Koreas, one flag in ceremonies -- "Kim Young-ho, a South Korean fencer who was part of the combined delegation of 180, said he felt "proud of being Korean" and said he hoped it would lead to both Koreas agreeing to form a unified team for the next Olympics."

Okay, I admit it. I actually had tears in my eyes when I saw this live on CBC. I'm a pretty emotional person, as close friends know.

I'm so proud of Korea! This is what the Olympics are about -- unity. I don't care about the commercialism, scandals, etc. I just don't care about that -- the true Olympic spirit is still alive in my heart... I won't let anything ruin it for me.
