It was an exhilarating July night that I sat in the Olympic stadium for Opening Ceremonies of the 1996 Summer Olympic Games. Celine Dion performed “The Power of the Dream” with David Foster on keyboards, The Atlanta Symphony Orchestra and Centennial Olympic Choir consisting of Morehouse and Spelman College Glee Clubs. I personally feel this song is the triumph of the human spirit. The lyrics “…there’s so much strength in all of us, every woman child and man. It’s the moment that you think you can’t, you discover that you can! Feel the flame, teaching lessons we must learn, it is the Power of the Dream that brings us here…”
I returned to the now “Turner Field” for the last time to watch our Atlanta Braves but this time was different!
