Oh I know that feeling. At my grandfather's funeral they played 'We'll meet again' by Vera Lynn and everytime I hear that song my heart just hurts so bad and I get this sinking feeling in my stomach.

While competing in the marathon in Mexico City, Akhwari fell, badly cutting his knee and dislocating the joint. He continued running, finishing last among the 57 competitors who completed the race (75 had started). The winner of the marathon, Mamo Wolde of Ethiopia, finished in 2:20:26. Akhwari finished in 3:25:27, when there were only a few thousand people left in the stadium, and the sun had set.
As he finally crossed the finish line a cheer came from the small crowd. When interviewed later and asked why he continued running, he said,

"My country did not send me 5,000 miles just to start the race; they sent me to finish the race."

This made my morning. When you think you're alone against an almost impossible obstacle, you then realize there are people close to you to help you with that problem. It kind of makes me wish to go where my father's at and hug him for a long time before he goes away for a while.

I saw this once in a school assembly.

Thanks for posting, nostalgia'd everywhere.

Was I the only one here who at first thought that the reason everyone here is so touched and crying because that white guy will win the race?
